Jump into the big blue and have an unforgettable experience swimming with whales alongside the crew of Sunreef Scuba in Mooloolaba on The Sunshine Coast

Tour Description

Each year between July and October the coastline of Australias turns into a highway for the annual humpback whale migration. Hundreds of these majestic giants make their way North to breed, before returning South again. Mooloolaba is well known as the best place to swim with Whales in Australia.

So why not meet them up close and personal on this incredible swim with whales experience – something that will no doubt be a huge highlight of your time in Australia!

You’ll join the team from Sunreef Scuba in Mooloolaba and hit the ocean in search of these amazing creatures. If the whales behaviour permits you’ll suit up, grab a mask and alongside your trained guide you’ll get the amazing opportunity to swim alongside them.

This is a 100% wild and natural encounter and if you’re lucky the whale will head over to you and see who’s swimming around in their back yard! Just make sure you have your GoPro to hand!

And of course if you’d rather stay dry you can also book this as a normal whale watching tour too.

Please Note: This tour is seasonal and only runs from July – Oct from Mooloolaba
