Whale One

Cruises, Whale Watching & Snorkeling
One of the most magnificent encounters we can have on this planet is during the humpback whale migration. Excitement and anticipation fill the air while we search along the horizon for the first blow or splash from these gentle giants. After years of observing these animals, we can safely say they sense us near them, as it seems they often curiously swim up to see our excitement.

Whale Watching cruises are available from June to early November with daily trips offered. You are guaranteed to see whales or receive a free return trip or money back. This is an educational and informative tour that will give you an immersive experience that is all left completely up to nature.

Whale One also offers a two hour Sunset Cruises which runs September to May with some of the best views the Sunshine Coast has to offer. Cruise the Mooloolaba Canals and Bay to take in the spectacular view of the Hinterland and the Glass House Mountains – awesome! Canape’s served whilst their talented musicians entertain you. Dolphin Discovery Cruise with Buffet Lunch is a two hour cruise with delicious gourmet meats and delicious salads. Dolphins and other marine life may be sighted during the cruise.
