Freedom can offer you a fantastic day out on the waters of Hervey Bay, Queensland to see the amazing humpback whales in their natural environment. During whale season, all Freedom Whale Watch packages include transfers from your accommodation, morning & afternoon tea and a delicious tropical buffet lunch so you don’t have to worry about a thing! We will also provide an information session on our way out so you can fully appreciate these amazing creatures.

Perfect for use during August’s Whale Festival, the Freedom III vessel is a stable and comfortable 58 foot catamaran (previously owned by world renowned documentary producer Ben Cropp) with 360 degree whale viewing on all 3 levels plus a water level viewing area to get you as close to these magnificent creatures as possible. Our Hervey Bay whale watching tours are certainly a fantastic experience so don’t miss out! For more information on our cruises, please see below.
