Whale swim green light

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

THE Ter­ri­tory is fa­mous for its swim­ming with the crocs but tourists to Queens­land can swim with an even big­ger beast – al­beit a de­cid­edly more friendly one.

Swim­ming with whales will be­come a per­ma­nent part of the Queens­land tourism in­dus­try af­ter an in­ci­dent-free three-year trial.

Whale watch op­er­a­tors in Her­vey Bay will be given the green light to of­fer the pop­u­lar at­trac­tion. Of the 11 boats cur­rently op­er­at­ing in the Fraser Coast whale watch­ing fleet, six are li­censed to of­fer the “swim­ming with whales” ex­pe­ri­ence.
