Torquay man has been on more than 100 whale watching trips
INTERNET tourism marketer Gary Crockett has been out on more than 100 whale watching trips in his quest to take sensational photos to promote tourism in the region.
Sometimes the Torquay man, who has lived on the Fraser Coast for 13 years, combines the images to make YouTube presentations.
He said a quality marketing campaign for the Hervey Bay whale watching industry was needed now more than ever since the State Government introduced changes that allowed the Sunshine and Gold Coast operators to see the whales closer to shore without having to pay the same fees as local participants.
Mr Crockett has shared some of his dazzling photos with the Chronicle.
