Whale Watching on the Whale One – Mooloolaba

After 4 years in the country we finally decided to book ourselves onto a whale watching cruise. We cruised out to the Whale Highway on the Whale One, which runs up the East Coast. From there we managed to see three pods of  whales, and got within 100m of two of them. I think they where putting a show on for the boat as one whale came right out the sea and broach with a huge splash as 40 tons of whale hit the water. These amazing creatures are breathtaking to see close up.

During the day we where also  served a nice buffet lunch and the bar was open all day. This is great day out for families and couples.
