A must do trip from Hervey Bay during the Whale migration season!
Everything about this trip was superb. ‘Freedom Whale Watch’ is obviously a highly professional, well organised and friendly company. From our hotel pick up to our return everything ran smoothly and to time. The boat was beautifully maintained and the numbers on board were small enough to make it a very enjoyable experience. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. The food was plentiful, tasty, fresh and of a high quality so our compliments to the chefs. Tea and coffee was also available throughout the day.
Our trip was in mid October and nearing the end of the whale migration period, but we were very fortunate to have seen many whales with several very close to the boat. The Captain was excellent at not only spotting the whales, but ensured everyone knew exactly where to look and kept us amused and informed throughout the trip. He went out of his way to find as many pods as he could and was always quick to act on any sightings by passengers.
All in all an exceptionally enjoyable day and therefore a must do trip from Hervey Bay during the Whale migration season.
