Coolum Beach is an excellent destination for the whole family. The pristine sands are perfect for beach-goers, and the waters appeal to surfers from all over the world. Add all that to the well developed boardwalk and numerous parks, and many guests never want to leave.
However, despite all that there is to do at Coolum Beach, it is worth noting that sometimes the best adventures can happen by taking to sea.
For an adventure in Coolum Beach that simply cannot be matched, whale watching is a must. Whales can be seen from the coastline at Coolum Beach, but there are also superb whale watching tours available. These professional tours take guests out for an up close and personal encounter with some of the most impressive animals on the planet.
In fact, whales are so common off the coast at Coolum Beach that every tour is guaranteed to have sightings.
Tours are available multiple times a day between July and October, which is when the whales are passing by during their typical migratory path. Every tour departs from The Wharf at Mooloolaba, which is not far from The Point Coolum hotel.
Guests will have the chance to see both Humpback and Southern Right whales, often in close encounters that will thrill, captivate and entertain. While the wildlife may be the main attraction on any cruise, guests will also see some spectacular scenery up and down the coast, making the experience enthralling from beginning to end.
In addition to the unmatched scenery, guests will travel in comfort during their whale watching tour. The luxurious vessels are spacious and well equipped to provide guests with comfort and flexibility during their time on board.
Every tour is booked with limited numbers in order to let each guest have the best experience possible. Tea is served throughout the tour, giving guests unparalleled contentment during their time at sea. The friendly crew is both capable and experienced, keeping guests safe while also providing excellent insights into the scenery and wildlife.
