Fantastic Whale Sighting

Humpback Whale Breaching Passions of Paradise

On August 26th, the crew and passengers were treated to a spectacular in-water display by a large humpback whale. Humpbacks travel the East Coast of Australia during July and August to breed in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef. From an almost decimated population of only several hundred due to over-fishing last century, the humpback whales now number more than 20,000 as a protective species and provide a great show when we encounter them.
