What you can expect

Join this exhilarating ocean adventure to encounter the majestic Humpback Whales, whilst cruising the coast line of one of Queensland’s most iconic islands, K'gari (Fraser Island). Swim, snorkel and soak in the scenery, taking in the history of the area and all the local hotspots on an adventure that combines the whales and stunning secluded beaches and sandbanks.

The only way to see more, do more and have more fun while making the most of your time in Hervey Bay is to jump aboard Wipeout and set off on a morning or afternoon adventure cruise that is equal parts exhilaration and wonder. Get set for a fun filled day discovering the beauty above and below one of Queensland’s most iconic destinations and the world's first Whale Heritage Site.

The afternoon adventure is one of the top things to do in Hervey Bay. All days are good days with Experience Oz.
