Ultimate Eco Adventure Tour Package

Moon Point Eco Tour & 3-hour Whale Watch

Aquavue and Pacific Whale Foundation Australia have teamed up this Whale season to offer an adventure package which showcases the beautiful Fraser Coast aquatic playground known as the Great Sandy Straits and the marine wildlife within.


Moon Point Eco Tour

Moon Point is one of the largest sand islands in the world and it so happens to be located right in our backyard. Situated on the west coast of Fraser Island, Moon Point is a truly breathtaking section of beach. On a Moon Point Scenic Tour with Fraserjet, you will be one of the few who get the opportunity to explore this spectacular section of the island. Departing from Aquavue in Hervey Bay, one of our expert guides will accompany you on a tour exploring Hervey Bay waters and the surrounding Great Sandy Strait, before arriving to explore the iconic Fraser Island. Whilst on your journey you will get to witness the stunning crystal waters Fraser Island has to offer, and if you're lucky, the chance to meet some of the marine wildlife on your return journey to Aquavue, such as turtles, dolphins and dugongs. What better way to explore then by Jetski!
