Hervey Bay Human Watching
(for whales only)
The Whales Are Coming and They Want You!
The whales have called ahead and booked their
accommodation now all we are required to do is ensure the boats that go out
are full of Humans for the Whales to watch.
Only a Hervey Bay Human Watching experience can get the Whales this close to you!
The calm and tranquil waters of Hervey Bay are protected from the wind and high seas by Fraser Island, providing the perfect backdrop for the Humpback Whales to spend a little vacation of their own watching us Humans perform for them. Frankly, they think it's crazy that we pay for the privilege of letting them watch us, but hey they're not fussed.
In a recent interview, the president of the ISPCH (International Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Human's) said "Whales of every species have embarked on several key protection strategies in an attempt to save the Humans from almost certain extinction. Unfortunately, some species are refusing to cease their Human "Research" activities and this is continuing to put the Humans at risk." ISPCH has advised all Whales they should get a glimpse of the Humans this season, as it may be the last!
The least we Humans can do is show up and thank them for their effort by putting on a little show.
The whales get such a kick out of watching Humans, they find us adorable and marvel at some of the things we can do. Some of them even stay in Hervey Bay for up to 4 months with the mothers teaching their young calves how to watch Humans, how to pose for photo's, how to tail flap to splash the humans, and to sing along with us, while later in the season the larger human males demonstrate their prowess in search of a female for the summer - The Whales think this is just a hoot!
