Testimonials & Awards

  • Great Whale Watching

    I am happy that I choose this whale tour in Sep 2013. I was very satisfied. I am happy that we took this tour which is longer than the half-day tour as it gives you the possibility to go further and see more whales. We had whales for about 45 min directly up at the boat, they were actually swimming below our boat and coming up on the other side. The boat itself was full on our trip but still it was not crowded and people had enough space to watch the the whales.

  • Great Day, Great Service

    Freedom Whale Watch was recommended to us by a friend and we were very satisfied with the day. The Freedom team were informative and made sure the day was fun. We liked the smaller boat which allowed for less cramped viewing of the whales. Food was good. Unfortunately my wife was quite seasick on the day however the crew were very caring of her condition. I would recommend Freedom to anyone anticipating a whale watching experience.

We had a fantastic day, the food was great as was the company, both on the boat and in the water, you couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended, dont come to Hervey Bay and miss this trip of a lifetime. A big thank you to both Keith and Sue what a fantastic job you do.

  • Highly recommend this tour

    My friends & I had a fabulous time aboard Freedom III. There was more than enough food for everyone on board. The boat was spacious with plenty of room inside & out depending on where you wanted to sit & didnt feel crowded due to the small number of people on board. Spending 6 hours on the water means you have more time with the whales. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone deciding to go whale watching in Hervey Bay.

  • Awesome!

    The best day from the moment we left the harbour with a young humpback within a stones throw. The boat has a character of its own, with Keith and Co providing superb service unlike I've seen on any vessel. The family atmosphere is unique and I couldn't rate highly enough. I'll be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Freedom III to anyone thinking about seeing the magnificent humpbacks of Hervey Bay with Keith aboard Freedom.
