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.

We will be updating our condition reports daily and provide at least 24hrs notice if we have to cancel a tour due to conditions.
