With a global population of 80,000, these stunning creatures have fought back from the edge of extinction. See these handsome animals as they migrate over 10,000 kilometres north from Antarctica to the subtropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef to breed. The eco commentary will tell you everything you need to know about humpback whales and other local Moreton Bay sea life, such as dugongs, rays, and turtles. Relax on the specially-designed catamaran as the tour leads you to these temporary locals to the Moreton Bay Region.
