Sail into the bay, admire views of the sunset, Fraser Island, and waterfront lights; and watch for wild dolphins and turtles.

Great boat, fabulous crew, good dinner - we didn't have to go far to find the whales, we stayed with good whales and kept looking if they were not too active - good captain attitude

Sounds like an all round success of an afternoon Denise! Our sunset whale watch cruises aren't always as popular as the morning cruises, but this is proof that they are just as good! Fabulous crew coupled with the skipper of all skippers, dinner and the sunset... What a winning combination.
