About
The sandy shores and marine life-filled waters of Fraser Island lie just off the coast of Hervey Bay. On this tour, take in the highlights on a half-day cruise and explore the island on a small boat. Cruise along the Great Sandy Strait, where you might spot dolphins and sea turtles in their natural environment; dive in to swim off the coast of Fraser Island; and enjoy refreshments on deck as you admire the ocean views.

Highlights
Magnificent views of Fraser Island from the water
Chance to spot bottlenose and Australian humpback dolphins
Hassle-free pickup and drop-off at your Hervey Bay hotel
Small boat cruise: enjoy extra attention from your guide
What to expect
After morning pickup at your hotel in Hervey Bay, meet your boat at Great Sandy Straits Marina. Nibble a light morning tea served on board as your captain steers the boat into the waters of Great Sandy Strait, which are home to two species of dolphins — bottlenose dolphins and Australian humpback dolphins — along with dugongs and sea turtles. Your guide shares commentary about the marine life of the region and other fascinating facts as you look for wildlife. Have the opportunity to swim off the west coast of Fraser Island at the pristine Pelican Banks, or at the beaches of Fraser Island itself. If you're feeling adventurous, you can ride in the boom net on the boat. If conditions allow, your captain may raise the sails on the 38-foot (11.5-meter) boat so that you can experience the vessel under sail power. The boat is a smaller sized vessel, making for a more intimate experience. Wi-Fi is available on-board. At the end of four hours, your tour ends with return to your starting point in Hervey Bay. Please note that dolphins are spotted on 95% of the tours, however they are wild animals and sightings are unpredictable.

Thank you Pete and Cassie for a wonderful morning. We got to see the beautiful dolphins at play. Perfect size group. We have 3 children with disabilities and they were all able to enjoy watching the dolphins and loved the swim in the beautiful crystal clear water. We would highly recommend this operator, facilities and their knowledge. Thank you again.

Perfect day on the water
We had a perfect day on the water! We spotted 4 dolphins swimming around our boat before stopping off Fraser Island for a swim. The weather was a bit gloomy to start but the sun broke through after our swim. Definitely jump into the net on the way back! There were so many snacks going around and the crew were very knowledgeable about the area and the sea life, and were very hospitable. We hope to join one of their other tours next time we make the trip up to Hervey Bay! Thank you for a lovely morning out!
