Humpback Whales Arrive at The Great Barrier Reef

Humpback Whales Arrive at The Great Barrier Reef

A Humpback Whale photographed on the Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas Australia.

It’s that time of the year again as reports of the first Humpback Whales arriving on the Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas and Cairns are rolling in. If you’re planning a trip to the Great Barrier Reef off Port Douglas or Cairns this winter you’ve got a good chance of seeing these amazing marine giants!

A group of Southern Humpback Whales migrate approximately 10000 kilometres each year from the Antarctic waters to the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef Australia for mating and birthing. The whales give birth in the safe warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef because the baby humpback whales calves have little body fat and would not survive in the icy waters of the Antarctic. The whales tend to hang around for a couple of months before starting the journey back to Antarctic waters.
