Whale swim green light
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.
