While we have just had a COVID lockdown, 35,000 humpback whales don’t have travel restrictions and are expected to migrate through Sunshine Coast waters.

Sunreef Mooloolaba owner Dan Hart said pre-covid, whale seasons could expect to attract about 15,000 locals and tourists alike to take a closer look and participate in a whale watching or swim with whales experience.

“Everyone was affected by COVID last year, but we still had strong support from locals and the drive tourist market and hosted about 10,000 guests.

“With Whale Watching season starting at the beginning of June and Swim with Whales season coming out of another lockdown, we are hoping to increase that this year.

“Already bookings are strong, and we hope that within COVID restrictions we have another great season.”

New for 2020 – Swimmers to venture around Mudjimba Island – CANCELLED

A brand-new ocean swim event is coming to the Sunshine Coast calendar on Sunday 5 April, delivered by Buderim based event organisers, Atlas Events.

With the support of Naming Rights partner, Sunreef Mooloolaba and Mudjimba Surf Lifesaving Club, ocean swimmers will have the unique opportunity to venture around a local landmark, Old Woman Island.

Leaving the shore at Mudjimba, the 3km swim will take participants around the iconic Old Woman Island, across reef home to turtles, before they head back to shore in time for coffee and breakfast. It will give swimmers an opportunity to have an adventure around the Island which they would have only seen from the beach.
