Blessing of the Fleet

Celebrating everything that the oceans of Hervey Bay has to offer, the Ocean Festival will kick off with the Blessing of the Fleet, followed by the Hervey Bay Seafood Festival, Whale Concert and Parade and Paddle Out for Whales. The Blessing of the Fleet sees the Whale Watch Operators join with local businesses dockside at the Urangan Harbour to host an evening of arts, water activities, markets and music culminating in a fireworks spectacular. You can tour whale watch vessels, talk with the crew and learn about the majestic Humpback Whale. The highlight of the evening is the traditional sail past and blessing of the fleet, a centuries old tradition from the Mediterranean, blessing the vessels of the whale watch fleet to ensure the safe passage of the vessel, its crew and in this case visitors and the whales they come to see.
