Tasman Venture Cruise


Tasman Venture is a luxury twenty metre catamaran which cruises through the water at twenty five knots. Join the experienced and friendly crew of the Tasman Venture for an up close and personal encounter with the majestic humpback whales as they stop in at the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay.

July to October marks the annual migration of the giant mammals from their home Antarctica to warmer waters near the Great Barrier Reef to mate and give birth. The return journey includes a playful visit to Hervey Bay where they delight us with a magnificent display of aquatic acrobats.

Witness the gentle creatures teach their calves how to breach, and almost touch their barnacle covered skin as they lunge and spy hop just meters from the boat.

The state of the art Tasman Venture will cruise you out on the calm waters of Hervey Bay for a half day adventure with the humpbacks. Relax in air conditioned comfort as you feast on your morning or afternoon tea out on the bay, and why not take advantage of the fully licensed bar offered.

Tasman Venture offers a total whale watching experience with the hydrophone, allowing passengers to hear the underwater songs of the mammals, and the underwater viewing windows which puts you eye ball to eye ball with the humpbacks as they glide beneath the vessel. For a truly memorable experience choose the brand new, state of the art catamaran, the Tasman Venture.
