Have you ever wondered what it would be like to swim with whales? There is no need to imagine any further as you can now...
Swim with whales onboard Island Venture
Conditions this week have been amazing. Crystal clear waters have lead to multiple whale immersion opportunities where guests have entered our protected waters to swim with whales and view them from within their own natural environment (conditions permitting).
We have had a great number of whales in the bay this week showcasing a wide range of behaviours. Our guests have seen mum's nudging their calves closer to our vessels to show them off for all to see. This behaviour shows just how comfortable these humpback whales are with human interaction. We tend to say that the humpback whales enjoy people watching, just as much as we enjoy whale watching.
... and visit the remote west coast of Fraser Island
Not only have our Remote Fraser Island and Whale experience guests been up close and personal with these humpback whales, they also explored the picturesque Wathumba Creek (pictured below).
Here guests kayaked up the crystal clear waters and snorkelled the freshwater Wathumba Creek taking in the variety of fish and even the the resident turtle came over to say 'hello'.
We offer a variety of 2 day Fraser Island tour packages that also incorporate the eastern side of Fraser Island. Feel free to check these out!
