The whale-watching season has begun! Do you want to get a close look at these magnificent creatures? The whale watching season lasts from June to October. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Gold Coast and book a tour with Whale One.

Sunreef’s flagship for whale watching is Whale One. This vessel provides the best 360-degree range of vantage points. The 19.5-metre multi-level catamaran gives maximum comfort to whale watchers. At the same time, the two licensed bars serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages such as coffee, chai, chocolate, and tea, as well as hot food and snacks.

You will undoubtedly enjoy an educational tour that will give you an immersive experience dependent on nature. Whale One guarantees whale sightings 100 per cent of the time. If there are no whales that day, you will be able to return on a free return trip. The trip begins at The Wharf Mooloolaba and lasts approximately 2.5 to 3 hours on the water.

Aside from whale watching, why not take advantage of other water activities on the Sunshine Coast?

Diving & Snorkelling

Sunreef, as previously stated, operates the iconic Whale One vessel for whale watching. Sunreef is also a PADI 5-Star Training Center, providing globally recognised dive courses for divers of all levels, from novice to professional.

Divers on the Sunshine Coast have access to several world-class dive sites. Sunreef provides trips to the Sunshine Coast’s growing and flourishing local reefs. Mudjimba Island, Wobby Rock, Caves, and Hanging Rock are four main sites they visit almost daily and are only a few miles off the coast, about 15 minutes outside of Mooloolaba.

Is diving too challenging for you? Why not go turtle snorkelling at Mudjimba Island? An in-water snorkel guide will assist you with your snorkelling skills and show you some of the reef’s inhabitants. You will encounter turtles, wobbegongs, rays, many types of reef fish, crayfish, cowrie shells, and the corals you’d expect from a Mooloolaba reef are among the locals.

Flight Adventure

Would you like to see the Sunshine Coast from a different angle? Paradise Seaplanes can assist you in this regard. Ride in their historic Wilga warbird, the most beautiful observation aircraft in the world.

One of their most popular flights is the 20-minute Sunshine Coast Adventure. It soars south over the Mooloolaba harbour and follows the beautiful coastline to Caloundra before gently landing on the crystal clear waters of the Maroochy River.

Submarine Dive Experience

Do you want to take advantage of this opportunity to dive inside a real submarine? DownUnder Submarines, Australia’s first tourist submarine, can take you 30 meters beneath the water’s surface off the coast of Mooloolaba.

“DeBrett Fisheries,” 21 Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba, is the departure point. Their team will provide instructions on dive procedures and submarine features. During the safety briefing before departure, passengers will have the opportunity to experience the cabin setting after boarding.

For about 20 minutes, the submarine dive experience will cruise out of the Mooloolaba river, allowing you to enjoy the scenery from your seat on the outside deck. When you arrive at the dive site, you will have a spot in front of a viewport that two people usually share. The dive lasts about 35 to 40 minutes.

Also, their guide will provide commentary on the submarine, sub-sea features, and marine life throughout the dive in a comfortable air-conditioned environment.
