Minke Whales Spotted in Cairns

Pro Dive Cairns saw the first Humpback Whales for the season on Cairns’ Great Barrier Reef, earlier this week. In an early start to Cairns’ whale watching season, the first Humpback Whale breaching was seen on Cairns’ southern reefs, at Flynn, Milne and Thetford. Humpback Whales usually arrive in July / August, so perhaps this early sighting is indicative of an excellent Cairns whale watching season for 2011.

Pro Dive Cairns Sales and Marketing Manager Steve Brady, said it was unusual for the Humpback Whale to be spotted so early in the year.
