Full description

On this full-day excursion, you’ll cruise the Great Sandy Strait along the pristine shores of Fraser Island. Spot dolphins, turtles, dugongs, birds, and dingoes as you enjoy a light morning tea of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, slice, and biscuits. An amphibious watercraft will take you to the western side of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, driving right onto the beach to ensure you remain dry and comfortable. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Wathumba Creek on a range of activities including snorkeling with turtles, kayaking, tubing, beach walks, or a sand dune climb. Following a delicious lunch served on the boat, the tour continues to Awinya or Bowarrady Creek. Enjoy the diverse natural surroundings and a variety of water activities. From mid-July to the end of October each year, be on the lookout for humpback whales and experience the thrill of getting up close and personal with these majestic creatures as they enjoy the calm clear waters off Fraser Island.

If conditions are ideal, guests will have the opportunity to experience a humpback whale immersion. The friendly and experienced staff will provide expert commentary throughout the tour as well as serving afternoon tea: antipasti platter including cheese, cabana, crackers, pickled onions, and dip.

    Melanie, Lloyd, Jen and BJ were all very amazing and exceeded my families expectations. We booked the full day tour and a full day it was. Do not hesitate to book this tour. We saw whales, turtles, kayaked, went snorkelling and most importantly were very looked after by the crew who were passionate and organised.

    My experience with Tasman Venture was wonderful, everything was perfect, from the hotel transfer to the boat, they were very careful to send a message about the time the day before, the boat trip, the food offered was delicious, the wonderful tour guides, they explain every detail of nature, the fun we had on the island, and to complete the wonderful tour we saw many whales, dolphins, turtles, it was all amazing! We will be back for sure!

    We had a great day. The tour was very relaxing which was great. We were not rushing around from place to place which meant we were able to take our time and enjoy the surroundings and take it all in. The group we went with was small and we felt like that helped a lot with the relaxed vibe
