Re: Rare Humpback

^^^^^^^

Thanks for that, powsmias. That lady got some really good pix!

We saw Migaloo, when he was still very small, he was shining white, like sun on snow.

Re: Rare Humpback

You guys are so lucky. I've been here ten years and have not seen Migaloo yet. But we were fortunate to have four humpback whales play with the yacht while moored at Little Pioneer Bay. We were a bit freaked out by their proximity but they were completely gentle with us.

If you are interested a short video of our encounter is here: maritimehippy.com - Queensland Humpback Whale Season
and so are the rules about approaching Migaloo if you are lucky enough to come by him.

Happy whale watching
