All profits go to saving whales and the oceans!


The Great Sandy Marine Park is home to a number of varieties of dolphin, turtle and dugong year-round, as well as a broad array of bird species; both migrating waders and local populations including osprey, kites, sea-eagles, terns, shearwaters, gannets and gulls. Choose a stopover on the beach of K’gari Fraser Island, Big Woody Island with its historic lighthouse, or perhaps land on a deserted sand cay.

During the whale watching season (July to late October), learn about our 35 years of local humpback whale research including the latest whale findings from marine biologists, and help collect data as part of our ongoing research studies. In addition to naturalist groups, tailored packages can be booked for wedding parties or receptions, birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, corporate whale watch or snorkel cruises, sunset cruises or milestone celebrations.
