Migaloo, The White Humpback Whale is back. (Video Included)

Migaloo the white humpback whale has been spotted on Australia’s East Coast. Migallo is an Aboriginal name which means “white fella”.  Migaloo is believed to be the only white humpback whale in the world, and is about 14 meters in length or just under 46 feet.
He was spotted in Queensland at the Gold Coast as he was heading further up north. Then he was sighted again, near Heron Island, by some of the staff from the Resort while on a fishing trip.


How very lucky to spot this beautiful whale, just imagine going along in your boat, and all of a sudden up popped this gorgeous white whale. He does look stunning against the blue ocean, it certainly would have been once in a lifetime viewing I should imagine.

    Hi magsx2, Migaloo holidays off Townsville and Magnetic Island each winter, with the “Townsville Bulletin” taking holiday photographs each year. We in the North look forward to the annual visit.

      Hi malc50,
      I think he is just so beautiful, I was reading somewhere (can’t remember where) that they are going to do a documentary on Migaloo, that should be a very interesting program to watch when it is completed.

    Hi magsx2, There are enough clips about migaloo on Youtube to make up a half hour documentary. One worth viewing is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Arid6XdBBlQ

      Hi malc50,
      Thank You for that a very nice video, but still not a documentary, I’m hoping they have actual footage of migaloo in various places on his journey from Antarctica, Africa and Australia. (I can only hope)
