Start your 3-hour whale watching cruise at Wharf Mooloolaba, where you'll board a 22-passenger boat, a fully refurbished ex-commercial vessel that allows for a steady ride on the shimmering waters of the Sunshine Coast. After a safety briefing, pick the perfect viewing spot on the boat's open deck and keep your camera on hand to poise at the marine life.
Listen to fascinating commentary from the expert crew and learn about the beloved humpback whales that migrate between Antarctica and Australia’s eastern coastline. Reaching a maximum length of 52 feet (16 meters), these majestic mammals often perform acrobatic displays in the water. Learn about their feeding, breeding and communication patterns as you look for their breaching and tail slaps.
In addition, the open deck allows for full walk-around access to places like the bow of the boat, where you often catch sight of dolphins playing in the wake.
After plenty of whale-watching excitement, your cruise concludes with a return to Wharf Mooloolaba.
