Enjoy Whale Watching in Mooloolaba, Australia
Enjoy Mooloolaba, Australia by boat! Whale Watching Tour: This really is a special Whale Watching experience that you will remember and talk about for a long time! Scream across the waters of the Sunshine Coast Bay in a turbo-charged jet boat, head out into the open ocean to get up-close with the migrating Humpback whales. This fast-paced whale watching tour takes you to the local sites where the Sunshine Coast’s biggest aquatic visitors come to play on their way North and back. Hop aboard the 9m, 780 horsepower vessel Hela-Va Jet and sit down in one of its comfortable, red and black Recaro racing seats. Your skipper and guide first offers a brief introduction to the boat, the required safety briefing, as well the vessel’s amazing capabilities. This includes the ability of reaching top speeds of up to 40 knots. And you will find out just how fast that is when you leave the dock and shoot out into Mooloolaba Bay. Hela-Va Jet is a custom built, High Speed, Open Ocean, Jet boat. This allows high speed tours without the need to get wet and or cold. Fitted with large “lamborghini style” wing doors, we will keep you warm, dry, safe and comfortable, as we head out to see the whales. The dolphins often play and follow our path as we are underway. Enjoy the thrill as Hela-Va Jet rockets into the Coral Sea to seek out the best spots for viewing pods of majestic Humpback whales. At times we will slow to a gentle crawl, looking for the characteristic blasts from their blowholes and the awe-inspiring acrobatics of their breaching maneuvers. If you’re lucky, you might get the chance to snap photos of playful calves, making the journey for the first time, or hear the faint sounds from their fascinating vocalizations. On your way back to port, on request from the passengers, the skipper may even throw in a wild spin or two, drifting turns, and throttle-stomping straightaways before you reach the calm waters of the marina. This will of course depend on those aboard as all will need to agree to the hair raising antics this vessel is capable of! All in all, the biggest advantage of whale watching on Hela-Va Jet is that you are SO close to the water! This means you are SO close to the whales when they show themselves! And of course you are then always ready for that perfect photo, with an unobstructed view. Price: - 120 AUD per person Deposit: - 25 AUD
