Our Boat

MV Utopia whale swim boat

Safety, comfort and speed for our guests experience is paramount to us and this is delivered with our 10m Kevlacat fast catamaran. Powered by two reliable four-stroke Yamaha outboards you may get to experience a top speed of 35 knots however we cruise at a very comfortable 22 knots. We are dedicated to providing an extraordinary guest experience therefore we limit each trip to a maximum of 12 customers at any one time on board.


The ocean conditions near Hervey Bay are usually mild due to the shelter provided by Fraser Island. The water is warm even in winter (when we swim with the whales) and clear - perfect for diving and swimming.
