Mikat Whale Cruises

The MV Mikat is a 20 Metre ocean going catamaran that will handle the generally calm waters of Hervey Bay with ease, comfort, stability and safety. The experienced crew have been operating whale watching cruises in Hervey Bay since 1987. MV Mikat offers two superb viewing decks – great for photo’s and video’s.

Touring Options

Whale Watching Cruise

Your full day whale watch cruise will depart at 9.00 a.m. so settle back and relax as the MV Mikat takes you to Moon Point on Fraser Island where you will enter the Hervey Bay Marine Park to enjoy more time with the Humpback Whales.

There are more whales to see and more behaviour patterns to enjoy. Breaching, spy-hopping, tail and pec-slapping and the very popular socialising, when some whales become as inquisitive about us as we are about these gentle giants from the Antarctic. The playful dolphins riding the bow-wave or interacting with the whales are an added bonus.

Explore The Outback

Australia has a vast remote interior, much of it largely untouched. By night, the outback is deathly quiet, with the only light provided by the stars and the moon - a perfect oportunity for stargazing. Explore the isolated heart of the country, meet and connect with Aboriginal people and experience one of the oldest living cultures in the world. Go ‘walk-about’ and immerse yourself with Australia’s endless outback horizons.
