Just spent a great day with the Freedom III Team. The boat and crew are wonderful and provide an experience not to be missed. The food is great and the 0930 start is perfect. Highly recommended.
Begin your day at Great Sandy Strait Marina and hop on the 58-foot catamaran to start your premium whale watching tour.
Spend the day searching for humpback whales at Hervey Bay and Platypus Bay during their annual migration to the Antarctic. Listen to informative commentary about the whales and their migration while enjoying tea, coffee, and snacks throughout the day.
Sightings usually include fin splashes, tail slaps, and breaches from pods of whales as well as dolphins, turtles, and seabirds. The catamaran is equipped with a hydrophone, allowing you to listen to whale noises on board.
Enjoy a lunch buffet on board as you view the western beaches of Fraser Island. After a few afternoon nibbles, head back to the dock and head back to your hotel on the complimentary shuttle service.
