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 guide and a safety line. 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.
Flinders Reef is one of the most beautiful dive sites in Queensland. Haled by divers and snorkellers alike for its pristine conditions and stunning visibility year round.
Flinders Reef is known for the abundance of different species of turtles, which inhabit the entire reef system. If beautiful coral reefs are your idea of the perfect dive, look no further. It has the highest number of coral species of any sub tropical reef system along Australia’s East Coast.
Swim throughs and pinnacles are scattered throughout this reef with something new to discover each time. Sunreef is the only company on the Sunshine Coast currently offering full 60-minute dives at stunning Flinders Reef.
