Whales On the Great Barrier Reef
At this time of year the Great Barrier Reef welcomes our annual inquisitive visitors from the cold southern waters of Antarctica, the giant Humpback Whales and the friendly Dwarf Minke Whales.
These mammals come to these safe waters to calve and play before heading south once again for the krill in the Antarctic summer. The Minke Whales have often been referred to as playful puppies and are known to play with snorkellers for hours in the water and to follow the superyachts 

Snorkel On the Great Barrier Reef
