Had a great day

My husband and I had a great day. We were lucky that the weather was great and there were lots of whales, mother and calves, breaches and fun slapping. Having said this the Captain communicated with other ships who had sighted whales and he travelled to these areas so that we could see and enjoy. The staff was great, the captain very amusing with his commentary and the food was plentiful and yummy. The seating was great and viewing areas abundant. There were 49 of us (Maxim capacity is 50) and the seating, viewing, food, staff attention etc was great. A 10 out of 10 from us.

Thanks for your lovely review Dorothy. We are very pleased that you really enjoyed all aspects of the boat and found the whales antics engaging. It is great when the boats work together to give the passengers the very best experience so they will hopefully spread the word that Hervey Bay is the best place to go whale watching. We hope to see you on Freedom again in the future.

Freedom 111 the best day trip we've ever had

From the moment we were picked up the bus driver made us feel welcome, his stories and banter had us all laughing. The staff on board were fabulous. The meals were incredible, especially those profitta rolls!!!! We saw so many whales we couldn't believe it. Had such a great time. Highly recommend!!!

What an Amazing day!!!

Keith and Toni are fantastic! They are very friendly and knowledgeable. I counted 19 whales that we actually saw, which does not include spouts in the distance. We were privileged to see 4 whales (one 8m and then three later on about 10m in length) come so close to the boat - just incredible!! They hang around the boat for about an hour in total. They were very inquisitive as one person said. They were happy to stick their noses out of the water, show us their white bellies, wave to us with their fin (probably not the correct terminology) and do many tail slaps. I have never seen anything like it - absolutely an amazing day! Praise God for His Creation! I thoroughly recommend Freedom III Whale watching!!! Everyone on board was ecstatic! I loved the experience!
