Bundaberg: Whale Watching Tour with Lunch

1. Bundaberg: Whale Watching Tour with Lunch

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey as you travel along the famous 'humpback highway' in Bundaberg, nicknamed after its large numbers of passing whales. Board a modern boat with plenty of room to enjoy panoramic ocean views and gaze at the impressive mammals. Depart from Bundaberg Port Marina on a large boat, sailing across the majestic Australian ocean. Enjoy a live commentary on board to learn interesting facts about the local whales and their behavior, as well as why the area was nicknamed the 'humpback highway'. Navigate along this unique site and look for the imposing humpback whales as they play around and swim around you. Move between the upper decks and fore decks to find the best viewing spot for you and, since you're bound to get hungry, have a light lunch on board.

From Bundaberg: Barrier Reef & Lady Musgrave Island Day Tour

2. From Bundaberg: Barrier Reef & Lady Musgrave Island Day Tour

Visit Lady Musgrave Island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef on this boat trip from Burnett Heads. Enjoy drinks, lunch, access to warm showers, a glass-bottom boat tour, and more. Snorkel in the unique coral lagoon surrounding the island and enjoy a guided island walk. Taking off from Bundaberg Port Marina, enjoy morning tea as you head to Lady Musgrave HQ, a new advanced eco-certified pontoon with snorkel and dive platforms, an underwater observatory, and a licensed bar. As you explore the coral reef lagoon, get plenty of opportunities to encounter manta rays, reef sharks, stingrays, turtles, and hundreds of tropical fish swimming in these coral gardens. Hop in the water to swim or take advantage of the included snorkeling equipment. As an added perk, non-certified introductory dives and certified dives are available if you wish to dive deeper into the coral reef (costs not included). Non-swimmers will love the three-level pontoon, glass-bottom boat tour, and guided island walk to experience the coral reef and marine life all without getting wet. After working up an appetite, a buffet lunch is available on board at your leisure, and you can freshen up with a warm shower after your snorkel and dive. On the boat ride back to the marina, enjoy another cup of afternoon tea.

Positives, friendly staff, great vessel, sensational location Could improve- Increase volume on catains PA, couldn't hear announcements. summary, Was the best memorable day! swum with turtles and the fish variaty was WOW factor for me. 10 year old was amazed and first timer snorkling and now wants more! 16 year old did scuba dive and was very impressed.

I had the most amazing day! Best experience ever! I can't swim and have a massive fear of water and Christian (I think) encouraged me to get into the clear beautiful water and he assisted me for some time. I will never forget it. All of the staff are so accommodating.

Super nice service and very good care! A wonderful experience to explore the island and snorkel there on the reef!

Awesome planned event in the southern Great Barrier Reef. Well organized and great guides.
