Migaloo Makes a Splash for the 2014 Whale Watching Season

What better way to open up the official whale watching season on the Gold Coast than with a visit from the world famous all white humpback whale, Migaloo. The magnificent whale was first sighted off Port Macquarie several days ago, then Byron Bay waters lit up with excitement as Migaloo swam through through Cape Byron before paying the Gold Coast  coastline a visit as he makes his way up to the Great Barrier Reef.

Migaloo was first sighted in 1991 off Byron Bay and was named ‘Migaloo’ through it’s translation into ‘White Fella’ from the Queensland Aboriginal Community and is part of the east Australian humpback population.

Migaloo has his own Facebook page and website and is one of the most photographed whales in the world and is protected under Australian law.

The team at Getaway Sailing have reported an amazing start to the Whale Watching Season with so many pods of whales travelling through the Gold Coast waters, they have lost count!
