A day on the Sunshine Coast with Katy Perry

IT'S not everyday you show off the Sunshine Coast to one of the most recognisable celebrities in the world.

Sunreef Mooloolaba had international pop music superstar Katy Perry aboard for a whale watching and snorkelling experience yesterday.

Wild One skipper Bill Carranza said it was a privilege to speak with Perry and described her as "motherly attentive”.

"She's so focused and attentive to make sure the entire group had a great time,” Mr Carranza said.

"Considering her status I was actually surprised. You hear terrible stories about some celebrities.

"She was very kind and nice and had plenty of questions about the whales. We talked to her for a little bit which was cool.”

After swimming with whales and snorkelling with turtles, Perry dined at The Dock Mooloolaba.

The group consisted of her dancers, stylists, make-up artists and more, with Perry enjoying the front row seats.

Mr Carranza said the highlight was when the sunset came through for their cruise back to The Wharf.

"Everyone on the boat was drinking and relaxing, then the sunset broke. It was magical out there,” he said.

"They would have had a spectacular day.”

He said Perry was far and away the most high profile celebrity Sunreef had hosted.

Sunreef and Dock Mooloolaba staff get to be guests at Perry's Brisbane show this evening.
