With over 30 years experience, Blue Dolphin Marine Tours offers one of the most comprehensive whale watching tours in Queensland. Travelling aboard a comfortable, multi award winning sailing vessel allows guests to feel like they are in the heart in the humpback whales playground.

Owner / Skipper Peter Lynch brings his knowledge, experience and passion on board each whale watch encounter providing expert commentary as he showcases the magnificent humpback whales in their natural environment.

Cruising the calm waters of Hervey Bay, guests may experience a variety of natural behaviours by the inquisitive and active humpback whales in their natural playground such as tail slapping, breaching, pectoral slapping or spy-hopping. If guests are fortunate enough and the conditions are right, Blue Dolphin Marine Tours may allow guests on their exclusive in water platform for an immersive experience offering a truly once in a lifetime encounter with a humpback whale.

Regardless of whether guests are in the water or on the boat, these magnificent marine creatures will take their breath away as they get up close and personal with them in their own environment, creating memories that will last forever.
