Whale Whatching

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

THE ‘Humpback Highway’ is set to hit peak hour as more than 11,500 whales migrate past our coastline for the warmer waters off Queensland.

The first humpbacks to migrate are usually younger male and non-pregnant females, with pregnant females the last to head north after gorging themselves in Antarctic waters before making the 7000km journey.

To ensure the survival of their calves, mothers must produce 600 litres of extremely rich milk a day.

Excerpt from www.whitsundaytimes.com.au.

Whitsunday Island Day Trippers regularly report whale sightings’ from June to mid September. Plan you holiday to meet the gentle giants of the sea.

Summit Apartments Airlie Beach Offers a free tour booking service.
