Whale Watching Cruise

Is the 1st - 5th November too late for whale watching in Hervey Bay?

Hi spoodle, you might get a straggler, the mob below run until early November, which most seem to do.

Check link below.


You never know your luck, I've been to Hervey Bay twice for whale watching, first time bang in the mid whale watching season, 1 whale, next time many whales, so you never know.

Safe travels - Robert

Thanks Robert. It is cup weekend in Melbourne and a quiet time work wise, so a good time to for us to go away. Accommodation in Hervey Bay is cheap then too :)

Our whale watch season in Hervey Bay usually runs until the end of October but has continued until early November in previous years .Every year is different and the whales run to their own agenda controlled by the seasonal variations in climate and water temperature.

Guaranteed sightings from late July- late October and then its up to the luck of the seasonal factors.

You might have more luck seeing humpbacks in Eden NSW at that time of year, ie November, google Cat Balou to get more info on whale trips there
