Our purpose built 20m marine tour vessel, the Amaroo is perfectly suited for the Great Sandy Straits and whale watching. 

Being a fairly large catamaran the Amaroo is naturally stable and spacious making for a fast and comfortable cruise. Boasting three viewing decks, including shaded top deck, you’re assured of an unobstructed, 360° view of all marine life allowing you to make the most of your cruise. The fact that the Amaroo also features a spacious, fully enclosed cabin make her one of the most versatile vessels in Hervey Bay's whale watching fleet.

Our vessel's colourful engaging design was not only conceived to attract adventurers... the designers took into consideration the fact that whales engage with bright colours and as such the M.V. Amaroo Hervey Bay is one of the more enticing vessels to inquisitive whales that visit Hervey Bay.

The comfortable seating inside and out, as well as a completely enclosed cabin, allows for maximum comfort no matter what the weather.

With two Scania 350HP engines and a cruising speed of 18 knots you won’t waste time traveling, so you have longer to spend with the whales.
