Imagine being awed as one of the largest animals on earth launches its body into the sky, before crashing gracefully back into the water and then popping up just meters away from you to say a curious hello. These gentle giants are known to be highly intelligent, community-oriented animals that we are so lucky to have grace our oceans.
Humpback whales are mammals that undertake one of the longest migrations in the animal kingdom, feeding all the way from Antarctica to breeding closer the tropics. The Great Barrier Reef is right on their migration route and is a popular stopping and resting point for these incredible creatures. The tropical waters are ideal for the young calves with little body fat as they bond with their mothers and learn essential survival skills.
The experience of seeing a humpback whale up close is really like no other, and our crew will do our absolute best to ensure you leave with unforgettable memories of your encounters.
