    We were in Hervey Bay for three days and were really unlucky because the weather was really bad, with rainstorms and wind. We tried to book a tour with Eco Marine and they told us that the day after would have been the best option during this bad weather week. At our arrival at

    Thank you for your review. Hervey Bay actually does not generally receive much rainfall so it was a little unfortunate for you. Very happy that despite the weather you enjoyed your day. We are all very passionate about the our marine park, and its inhabitants and we are so pleased that we could share that with you. Hope to see you again one day! All the best :)
