Sailing in Paradise!
Welcome to our K’Gari, which means Paradise! Our home port of Hervey Bay and the largest sand Island in the world, Fraser Island, is a short 3 hour drive north of Brisbane, while the local Fraser Coast Airport offers direct flights from Sydney and Brisbane.
Hervey Bay Whale Watching
Hervey Bay has long been known as the Humpback playground and in 2019 became the World’s first Whale Heritage Site. The sheltered waters of Platypus Bay provide the whales an opportunity to rest on their annual migration south and a safe place to teach their calves. Needless to say, this offers a unique and spectacular show.
Affordable Boating Holiday
From as little as $83 per day for accommodation and activities including whale watching (in season), we give that value for money. Want more? We will reduce the nightly rate the longer you stay. Still want more? Become a repeat charterer with us and receive up to 10% discount on the charter fee.
