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.

Nothing was too much trouble…

Thank you so much for the brilliant day out whale watching yesterday. The whales were absolutely amazing. And while they’re definitely the stars of the show the crew aboard Freedom 111 took the trip to the next level. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. Nothing was too much trouble. And the food was sooo yummy. Highly recommend Freedom Whale Watch for an experience not to be missed.

The whales were breathtaking…

Thanks Sue and Keith for a wonderful trip to see the whales. The experience was great and the staff were helpful and lovely. The food was to die for and plenty of it. The whales were breathtaking and all was done to give us a wonderful view of them.  We were recommended to do the trip with you by friends from NSW and we certainly have and will continue to pass on to all we come in contact with to go with you if they want a remarkable day. Thanks again from two grateful older people.

Highly recommended, will do it again!

Great day whale watching in safe and sturdy catamaran which handled choppy seas well on return journey. Interesting commentary by Captain on Fraser Island on outward journey. Captain and crew very knowledgeable about the whales. Bonus sighting of many pods of whales. Nice meals and very well looked after by efficient and good natured Captain and Crew. . Highly recommend and will do it again.

10 out of 10!

What can I say… Great boat, great hosts, great food, and… the most awesome whale watching experience imaginable! Don’t even consider the competitors, if you like the freedom to move around, great access to the whales wherever they may decide to surface, unrestricted viewing and not feeling guilty that you should move aside to let someone else in who can’t see because there are just too many people on the boat – choose these guys – Freedom Whale Watching, 10 out of 10.

I won a voucher in a raffle for this whale watch….And I have to admit that it is the BEST prize that I have ever won in my life!!!
Sue and Keith and their staff could not have done ANYTHING else to make our day more perfect…They looked after us so well and they fed us just the most delicious home made scones with jam and cream for smoko then the most awesome lunch of home cooked chicken and salads, then beautiful fruit and cheese platters for afternoon tea!!
I took my 2 grand daughters and they just had the best time of their lives…They could not believe that there were so many mothers and baby whales! So…listen up everybody…If you want to see whales and be pampered these are the blokes to do it!!! Freedom III …YOU GUYS JUST ROCK!!!
