Description

Swim among the ocean’s gentle giants during this intimate encounter with humpback whales. Embark on a boat expedition to get close to these majestic mammals, strap on your snorkelling gear, and then ease into the water to meet them in their natural environment.

Head down to The Wharf Mooloolaba to get acquainted with the crew. Pick up some snorkel gear, then hop on board a comfortable boat to cruise the Sunshine Coast in search for whales. As you pull away from shore, gaze out at endless turquoise water, the city shrinking into the distance.

When you spot a spouting blowhole or the flick of a tail, sit back as the captain puts the boat in neutral to drift from a comfortable distance to the whales. Once the expert crew has verified that the conditions are safe, your guide leads you into the water. A floating safety line attaches to the boat to keep you feeling secure.

Outfitted with your snorkel mask, you have prime views through crystal-clear waters. Relish the feeling of weightlessness in your serene blue surroundings, and just float while your presence sparks the whales’ curiosity. As these spectacular creatures swim closer to investigate, feel the exhilaration of encountering them on their own terms. Keep your waterproof camera handy—you have plenty of time to snap photos of this intimate moment before getting back in the boat and cruising to shore.
