If you like the idea of whale watching tours Queensland has several companies offering this tour. Tours vary in duration, although you can typically expect to spend between two and three hours at sea. Boats are small enough to not frighten whales and dolphins away, but large enough to have toilets, indoor and outdoor seating and in many cases, drinks or snacks. An experienced guide will be onboard and customers are encouraged to keep their eyes open for the huge sea creatures. Of course, no tour company can guarantee 100 percent that you’ll actually see a whale, although tour companies have the expertise and knowledge to maximize your chances, often using the latest radar and sonar technology. And whether you see a whale or not, it’s a pleasant and relaxing way to enjoy a couple of hours on the water.
