The opportunity to swim with a Humpback Whale is a rare and very special one, and Sunreef Mooloolaba was Australia’s first operator to offer the experience, launching in 2014.
It’s a very special breathtaking experience that will leave you with a true sense of wonder about these amazing mammals.
The experienced Sunreef crew will find and trail along at a safe distance from the whales to allow them to get used to the sound of the engines. Then, after assessing the whales’ behaviour, they will move ahead of the whales. If conditions are right, they will then put the boat into neutral and allow guests to slide into the water with a Sunreef guides. Then its up to the whales – its a natural experience and 100 per cent on the whales’ own terms. They seem as intrigued by people as people are of them and often swim over and around for a closer look, gliding gently and effortlessly around you. Operates from July to October each year. Please check with Sunreef for dates and more information.
