Migaloo was spotted off Cairns (near Fitzroy Island) on the 25th July and again off Port Douglas on Thursday 26th July. His last sighting was east-north-east of Cape Kimberley which is slightly north of Port Douglas in North Queensland.
A Big Thank you to Lyle & Timon from Hinterland Aviation Cairns for reporting the Migaloo sighting off Port Douglas at 11.45am on the 26th July.
I bet we all wish we were the lucky tourists who had the rare glimpse of the white whale along with their pilot. The divers were returning from a trip onboard Spirit of Freedom, so after a few days enjoying amazing diving on the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea they then got the ultimate end to their trip!!
The same pilot, Timron Ehret, then sighted Migaloo again near Cape Kimberley later in the day on another flight north to Lizard Island again.
Migaloo is right on schedule for his annual trip.
