Great cruise

Our 3rd whale watching cruise in Hervey Bay, 1st time in Whale Song. Crew couldn’t have been nicer with very friendly service who actually walked around serving food rather than having to line up like other cruises, allowing us to continue to watch whales. Will be back for sure!

What a beautiful experience!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the whale watching tour with Whalsongs. The crew was very knowledgeable and friendly! They made sure we had the best time and explained a lot about the whales. I think it’s great that Whalesongs really cares about the wellbeing of the whales and to not disturb their natural behavior. As the whales got really interested in our boat though, we saw them super close and even had some dolphins join!! We can only recommend this tour to anyone, a must do in Hervey Bay and for sure a lifetime experience!

Amazing!!

Absolutely amazing experience! We had the chance of watching the whales as close as they can be. A mum with its calf just turning arround the boat and showing us all their tricks. We had an incredible morning! Also to mention the incredible people from the crew, and the lovely lunch we had to finish the trip. Totally recommended

whale watching at Hervey Bay

I had a fantastic time. The staff were helpful and very friendly. The boat captain was very informative in his commentary. The experience was great, especially the cruise home in the sunset.

I totally agree with you, Lorraine! The cruise home in the sunset is such a delight! It's two cruises in one - a whale watch and a sunset cruise. Doesn't get much better! Thanks for the great review. Warm Regards, Rebecca

Whalesong cruise fantastic

Absolutely fantastic this cruise. The whales came right up to the boat and underneath the boat. Great size vessel for easy viewing for everyone. Amazing. Don’t miss if in Hervey Bay.

Thanks for the wonderful review, Lynnie! We're often treated to incredible whale action. Personally, I think it's our boat and the crew who steal the show sometimes! :-) . Hope to see you again sometime! Warm Regards, Rebecca
