The Hervey Bay Dive Centre is Hervey Bay's premier marine and dive tour operator.
Owned and operated by a local family with years of experience in the marine industry the centre prides itself on a personal experience, passionate and professional crew and a strong environmental approach.
The dive centre provides guided ex-HMAS Tobruk dives, PADI diver training and Hervey Bay's dedicated swim with whales tour.
Hervey Bay Dive Centre operates the regions only dedicated whale swim experience between July and August (from September onward our tour moves to a whale watch focus due to the number of calves which we cannot swim with).
This exclusive experience is an incredibly special opportunity to watch and swim with one of nature's most majestic mammals, the Humpback whale, a curious, gentle and trusting creature.
Guest numbers are strictly limited (maximum 12) making for a personal and fun day on the water.
Each sighting is different and every whale swim unique and personal. People that have swam with whales often describe the experience as "life changing".
Their peak swim period is July through August and their cruise maximises your opportunity to immerse with the whales.
Swimming with the whales is conditions dependant and they only do so with the right whales and on their terms.
They provide you with a wetsuit, snorkelling, safety equipment and experienced dive guides.
With the smallest guest numbers in the bay you’ll feel like part of the family and they look forward to welcoming you aboard.
