Early start and a drive from Burrum Heads to Hervey Bay to board our boat for day that delivered on all counts.
Five and a half hours with snacks and lunch on board and a Captain who knew exactly where the Whales would be.
We were miles out to sea almost to the end of Fraser Island , beyond all the other boats and he delivered us in amongst many Pods of Humpbacked Whales.
Mothers and calves and males showing off Breaching and splashing. He asked us all to wave at them because he said they were attracted to the noise an movement. We thought it was a wind up but it worked every time, bringing them right up to the boat and under it.
It could not have been better. Later in the day we saw Ospreys and Sea Eagles on the local beach and hundreds of Pied Cormorants.
What an amazing day !!!!
