Renowned as the whale watching capital of the world, and crowned the world’s very first Whale Heritage Site, the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay offer your family and friends the unique opportunity to see these magnificent creatures at play.
More the 8,000 giant humpbacks taking a ‘breather’ on their annual migration south after calving in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef come to rest and socialise in the protected waters of Platypus Bay between World Heritage listed K’Gari (Fraser Island) and the mainland of the South East Queensland coast. For 4 months each year from July to October they stop here to feed and play with their calves, showing a magnificent display of breaching, spy hopping, tail slapping, and interactive social behaviour.
Sweet Escape offer you the opportunity to experience these majestic animals and unforgettable sights from your own spacious and luxurious yacht. Be sure to check out our gallery and blog post for more information about whales, dolphins and ocean research.
