World class whale watching with The Boat Club.

The brightly coloured Amaroo - known as the “rainbow boat” - is crewed by an experienced local team passionate about the whales and proud to provide the excellent customer service that the Hervey Bay Boat Club is known for.

The colourful vessel is attractive to the inquisitive humpbacks providing ample opportunity for the renowned Captain Phil House to provide expert, educational commentary for passengers of all ages as the whales closely “mug” the sides of the boat.

Boat Club whale watching is exceptional value for an equally great tour in comparison to other half-day cruises.
