The whales are coming!

Patrick's Friendly Tours - Monday, June 01, 2015
The winter whale migration for 2015 has begun today 1st of June. They have already been seen up the coast of New South Wales travelling north, in search for warmer waters.

The experts believe that this year we will see an increase of 8% in the southern right whales, and an increase of 10% with the Humpback whales. This means that we will see an approximate of 6,500 whales travelling pass our coastline, which is a great indication on how effective has been the measurements taken by the whale’s conservationists.
Along with this, we are also witnessing an increase in dugongs, dolphins, fur seals and orcas (killer whales), which is a great reason to make us feel more enthusiastic about taking care of our marine environment.

The whale migration travelling north will continue till mid July, and they will return south from September to November. Whale watching cruises depart from Sydney Harbour are very popular for people who seeks close encounter. Don't forget some warm clothes!
