Federal and state guidelines along with the recommendations of the Queensland Health Department concerning limiting the effects of coronavirus form the basis of our guidelines.

Hervey Bay is “Good to Go” and is a safe travel zone, perfect for all to enjoy our magnificent Ocean lifestyle. Our vessel, Ocean Defender, has forward-facing aircraft-style seats with a clear view from the vessel, and the open-air environment of a rigid inflatable boat gives a continuous supply of fresh clean ocean air.
Our expert team of Certified Marine Naturalists are on board to care for our guests creating an unforgettable experience on the waters of Hervey Bay. They are fully trained in all aspects of the marine environment and have completed extra modules in caring for our guests, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience from check in to disembarkation.
A contactless check-in process at our Ocean Store in the tourist terminal at Urangan Harbour compliments the increased cleaning and sanitation methods aboard our vessel with hand sanitising stations both ashore and aboard Ocean Defender. Our Ocean Store is open and already busy with bookings and gift sales for all.
Snacks aboard are individually wrapped in line with current regulations and recommendations.
