Swimming with the whales is to start this winter with a select number of Hervey Bay charter operators introducing the experience on a trial basis. It is the first immersive humpback whale opportunity of it’s kind.
This premium experience offered in Hervey Bay will only increase the regions already high reputation for whale watching, adding the ultimate experience to swim with the amazing creatures. A number of regulations exist for the welfare of the whales and the trial bases will still ensure the safety of the whales and participants involved. However for the first time tourists will be able to get in the water, close and personal.
This opportunity also provides significant economic benefits to Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast region. Read the Fraser Coast Chronicles article detailing the new venture.
