Close to the end of June 2015 and we have soooooooo many whales traveling north on their annual migration. Humpback whales are cruising past the Gold Coast on their journey to the warmer waters of Queensland for the breeding and birthing grounds of the Great Barrier Reef. Some of these whales will travel as far as Fiji and Tonga for their annual pilgrimage to find a mate. This image was taken in the crystal clear waters of Tonga.

The 2015 season has begun, and sightings down south confirm its promise of being the best ever. The humpback highway is going to be busy.

The best way to see the whales is from your private, silent and comfortable yacht. The whales seem to prefer our boat to the noisier motor
