Whitsunday Island Marine Life
Note that from June to September is the annual humpback whale migration season. The whales are equally one of the most magnificent natural marine life encounters that could happen on your luxury Whitsunday Island cruises. Humpback whales quite frequently visit many of the Whitsunday Island anchorages, especially with their newborn calves.
Other Whitsunday Islands marine life encounters include becoming face to face with a friendly (and rather large) Maori Wrasse or an exuberant Giant Trevally with attitude. We have a variety of turtles that are residents here. Mainly the Green Turtle but also, in smaller numbers, the Flatback, Hawksbill and Leatherback too.
The Whitsundays is home to arguably the most famous of all dolphin species, the Bottlenose Dolphins. They can also be quite cheeky and playful as they swim in front of the bow of Brilliant Company when cruising to new destinations. Also, the dolphins are very active feeders at night in the bright underwater lights.
Another famous majestic marine life found at the Whitsunday Islands is the Manta Ray. During wintertime, many Manta Rays visit the region more frequently and stay around Manta Ray Bay feeding. Keep a close eye out for them cruising the shorelines as they are often surface nearby anchored vessels. You can watch them gracefully eating plankton and effort travelling along using their enormous wings, which can sometimes be seen from above the surface.
