Reports of a whale stuck in shark nets off Broadbeach this morning have been ruled a false alarm.

Sea World checked it out reports of a whale stuck off Kurrawa Beach around 5:45 on Tuesday morning, and said while there was a pod of whales swimming freely further south, none of them look to be injured or in any distress.

A spokesperson said while there was a chance a whale was stuck and managed to free itself it doesn't look like that was the case as there was no trace of damage to the nets.
