Sunreef Mooloolaba are excited to be sharing their love of humpback whales with their Australian-first Swim with whales encounters. It is not just about giving people the opportunity to see the giants of the sea from a new perspective; it’s about education and providing research opportunities. This year more than 20,000 humpback whales, identified as the Area 5 whales, are expected to migrate up the east coast of Australia and back down to the Antarctic, with numbers expected to increase by about 10 per cent each year.
It takes about 15 minutes from the dock to get out on the beautiful waters off the coast, which are at their best during the winter months when the whales migrate. Water temperatures during this time range from 17 to 23˚C and visibility is regularly up to 30 metres.
