Overview
Sundown is perhaps the atmospheric time to experience the waters of Hervey Bay, so make the most of the magic on this sunset cruise. Sail into the bay, admire views of the sunset, Fraser Island, and waterfront lights; and watch for wild dolphins and turtles. Plus, sip a complimentary drink, savor gourmet finger foods; and enjoy the onboard cash bar. Hotel pickup and drop-off make everything extra easy.

Thanks for the high recommendation and lovely review, Denise! Our crew and staff are absolute gems. They love what they do and you can certainly tell...even in this new norm with heightened COVID hygiene. The sunsets are stunning this time of year too. Our Afternoon + Sunset whale watch guests are going to enjoy it all this year! Hope to see you again soon! Warm Regards, Rebecca

A beautiful sunset cruise around the bay with Whalesong Cruises. The captain and crew were wonderful, friendly and professional. Great service with a variety of delicious canapés. We had a wonderful time and would love to do it all again. Highly recommend this cruise.

The friendliness, yet professionalism of the crew to the delicious local seafood and non-seafood canapes are what makes this a fabulous time out on the water. As great way to end your day or begin your evening, indeed! Thanks again!

We love our sunset cruises too! Not much better than some great company, great music, delicious nibbles, a glass of your favourite tipple and a stunning sunset over the water. Actually, if you add a few humpback whales, it certainly adds to it. See you for an Afternoon + Sunset Whale watch at some stage. :-) Cheers, Rebecca
