We’ve been keeping this quiet - now we can’t help but share what we’ve been up to behind the scenes.The Humpback Whale watching on the stunning Visit Fraser Coast in beautiful Visit Queensland, Australia is second to none. The entire Whalesong Cruises Hervey Bay team has seen the positive impact that wildlife encounters can have on our guests.Although the boat was built with accessibility in mind, and has some great vantage points, as well as good manoeuvrability and a wheelchair accessible toilet, we understand that not everyone can get out on a boat. It's unfortunate that many won't get to enjoy what an incredible experience this is.Cue, Bec's brain shifting into overdrive....Last year, she contacted the talented local videographer David Pierson Films and before she knew it, we were taking 360 degree video footage on the boat. Long story short, we now have some awesome 360 deg video footage of our cruise and some whale action. Simply insert into the VR headset and it's like you're on the boat...watching whales...without having to leave your wheelchair - and less chance of seasickness 😉This is perfect for taking the whales to people, who can't visit them.Welcome to the 'Whales for Everyone' program!There's so much more to tell. At this stage though, all we can say is, we are just getting started. We've already visited 5 aged care facilities in Hervey Bay, the PCYC Hervey Bay Youth Program and will soon be heading into some respite centres. The visits have all been so successful and well received! The plan is to make this into a larger program for everyone to enjoy on a regular basis.Thus far, Whalesong has funded everything (initial filming/editing, VR headsets, banners, wages etc...). Thanks to a recent digital grant from the Fraser Coast Regional Council, we are able to film again next week and create new content. Giving a selection of VR experiences for everyone. Thanks FCRC! 👏Oh, we could go on and on about this, as you can probably tell 😅It's such a beautiful project. Seeing the reactions to the whales and the experience, in general, has been extremely heart warming.This video was taken live today at the beautiful facility, The Waterford Premier Health Care. (All these residents have permission to be filmed 😊). The video died, but you get the point. 😉 At some point, we'll be making the headsets available in our Marina office for a try-before-you-buy experience. In the meantime, we're going to keep sharing in this beautiful community of ours.whalesong.com.au/hervey-bay-whale-watching/#whalesongcruises #whalesherveybay #humpbackwhales #virtualreality #community #givingbacktothecommunity ...

The Whale Festival has been postponed.Sad news but hoping we can have it happen at some stage this season.We're still operating our daily whale watching cruises....at least, for now. If anything changes, we'll let you know. We're seeing more and more whales every day in the Bay - it's such a great time of year to come out. They're very fun at the moment. 🐋💦😊We have some beautiful footage from our weekend's whale watching, to share with you all soon. Just wanted to give you the heads-ups about the Whale Festival, in case any of you were planning on coming to HB for it.whalesong.com.au/hervey-bay-whale-watching/ ... See MoreSee Less

We had a wonderful time on our Sunset Cruise.Although it was a tad cloudy and windy, that didn't take anything away... from a sensational experience. The crew were fabulous and friendly. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Thankyou for a brilliant experience. We'll be back for a cruise in Whale season for sure. ??read more

Thank you Whalesong for an amazing Beach & BBQ Cruise today. We would like to highly recommend you to any family for an... awesome day out. The staff on board are so happy and helpful. We didn’t want to come home as we had a blast on the beach, kayaking, swimming and being towed behind the speed boat in the Cool Croozer?It was so much fun. Oh and lunch was perfect!!!Thanks again?read more

I went on Whalesong cruises for the evening Sunset Cruise in January 2020. The staff were fantastic, the food was... great and also included great helpings of Seafood, which I was not expecting. I spoke to Doug the owner and skipper who was a lovely bloke and would highly recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Hervey Bay. Excellent.read more

Best experience. I highly recommend. Friendly and experienced staff, the boat is clean, spacious and everyone gets a... good view, there's no doubt about that. This company is very respectful of the whales and other marine life. The captain sure knows where the whales hangout and we have seen beautiful ones, of all size. They were relaxed and playful in their element. They were very curious and came up close to the boat to say hi. We even spotted dolphins during this tour. What a great experience, I cannot wait to go back again.read more

It’s a great half day trip with plenty of whales to watch, to see them flapping around is just a magic. The... knowledgeable guide has a really good eye for spotting them, all the time points out the right location of them and excellent talks about whales as well. Highly recommend this half day trip.read more
