The Whale One team were amazing

The Whale One team were amazing! They had great customer service, were polite and the captain was very knowledgable. Despite being the end of the season, they were still able to find us a mother and a calf whale heading down south. We got so close to them and the captian made sure that all sides of the boat were able to have a look. Terrific crew and experience, would highly recommend!

The staff was very nice

The staff was very nice, careful and helping. It didn't take long to find whales, the spot area was great (nice view + explaination about whale's life in live by the crew). The weather at the end was very bad, but everything has been done to limitate the inconvenience.

Had a really lovely morning out on Whale One with the family

Had a really lovely morning out on Whale One with the family! The capitain was very informative, funny and friendly. We got to see multiple whales and calves which was great! Sea was a little rough but that didn't hinder the experience.

We did a whale watching tour from Mooloolaba on Whale One

We did a whale watching tour from Mooloolaba on Whale One. The captain was very informative and did manage to find a mother and calf and followed them for quite some time. Being an experience involving wild animals results aren’t always positive but our tour was. I would recommend this tour to anyone and in my opinion it represents excellent value for money.The boat we went out on was clean and well maintained with a reasonable amount of room for everyone to get a good chance to see the whales. We also managed to see a small pod of dolphins on the way back to the marina.

It was amazing to see the whales so close

It was amazing to see the whales so close! The captain did well to follow the whales that we could see them always good. We have been lucky and saw a whale playing with dolphins :) We took some great photos of the whales with the skyline of the Sunshine Coast in the background. Just 4 stars because the tour lasts just 2.5h instead of 3h.
