About the humpback whale migration

Each year thousands of Humpback Whales migrate along the eastern side of Australia. They migrate from their summer feeding grounds in Antarctica to their breeding grounds in Northern Queensland, during their migration these whales are known to venture close to the shoreline, giving thousands of locals and tourist a glimpse of their inquisitive natures and spectacular antics. 

June to August: The humpbacks embark on their migration to tropical North Queensland waters to breed and mate

Mid-August through to November: The humpbacks slowly head back south to Antarctica with their newborn calves, often resting and playing along the way. 

---

The safe and warm waters out from Mooloolaba are a favourite place for these beautiful animals, so get ready for some of the best views and live whale entertainment you’ll ever see!

The 2018 whale migration will be a bigger year, as marine biologists have found the population of humpback whales are increasing by around 10% per annum!

* Last year we had an estimated number of over 16,000 whales visiting our waters and saw the largest number of calves born in 50 years .

Our Skippers and crew are very experienced and have a deep love and knowledge of whales. They enjoying sharing their passion for whales and are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
