Humpback Encounters, Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia

Join this fabulous marine wildlife adventure!


Your tour will give you quality time on the water (and if conditions permit, in the water),  up-close and personal with the magnificent humpback whales, in the magical waters of the Hervey Bay Marine Park.

This is your chance to shoot alongside renowned photographers Darren Jew and Jasmine Carey and gain insights into the world of whale photography, and the creative processes that go into capturing their images.

Not only will you have the chance for great whale encounters in and out of the water, but you’ll also receive expert photo-guidance along the way!

From just $195
