Paddle Out For Whales


Paddle Out for Whales - August 4, 2019.

Bring your SUP, kayak, blow up toy or home-made raft along to celebrate and encourage whale conservation in Hervey Bay, the whale watch capital of the world. Creativity is encouraged and the more colourful and quirky the better!

Paddle out into the ocean for a minute silence to recognise the importance of the ocean and whales to the world, and particularly the Fraser Coast.

Enjoy  activities and live entertainment throughout the afternoon.

Make sure you pre-register, or register your participation on the day to show your support. You don’t have to paddle out, you just have to be there!
