Turtle

The Hervey Bay Turtle Tour

The Milbi, our glass bottom boat, navigates through the beauty of the Great Sandy Strait Marine Park. It will take you to an island where you will be receiving a warm Welcome to Country from our Butchulla guide.

 

As we travel through the Straits, join the search for fish habitat amongst the coral reef, turtles, dolphins, sea bird colonies, and possibly a reef shark or dugong. Mother Nature will lead the way.

 

Time is spent on the island, where you can swim or snorkel in crystal clear waters, play beach cricket or relax on the sandy beaches. Immerse yourself in the Butchulla culture with our local Indigenous guide. As we only carry small numbers, your personalised Aboriginal experience is shared in a relaxed and friendly manner. 

While it is our aim to offer the best marine experience possible, inclusions may vary to suit the most favourable weather for your comfort. Reef snorkelling is determined by the conditions on the day. If the reef is not possible, a beach snorkel will be available.

Turtle Discovery departs daily at 10.30am and returns approx. 2.30pm.

Pram/Baby friendly

However, there are no baby changing facilities onboard Milbi. 

 

It's best to change into your bathers/swimmers before boarding.  Then pop your clothes on top.  Aussie style. 

There are bathroom facilities to do this right next to our Office.

Verified Review

If you've reached this point in the reviews - trust me - don't hesitate any further - just book. We had the best day and 24 hours later are still incredibly relaxed. The team were amazing. Knowledgable. Professional. Friendly and eager to answer any cultural questions you could have. Jojo performed a "Welcome to Country" ceremony, which was deeply moving and an honour to see. Pelican Bank - what can I say - heaven on earth. No photos would do it justice. White sand. Isolation. Crystal clear blue water. We lay in the water for almost an hour without moving. From the boat, we searched for turtles, a dolphin and a stingray. We snorkelled - and any beginners got a huge helping hand. The equipment was provided!!! All the facilities on board were top notch. Clean and comfortable. It's not very often that you feel a group tour has ended too soon - but this one did. Set aside the whole day and arrange a dinner out - to soak in the experience and relaxation when you get home. Don't hesitate - book now before word gets out. Jack 2021
