The Humpback Whale northerly migration is in full swing with the giant mammals giving birth in the warmer coastal Australian waters
Wolf Rock Dive Centre is excited to announce that we will be operating from June 12 onwards! We will be following social distancing measures with reduced numbers, meaning small personal groups and close encounters.
June is one of our favourite months to be in the water at Wolf Rock. The Humpback Whale northerly migration is in full swing; these giant mammals leave the icy waters of Antarctica to give birth in the warmer coastal Australian waters.
The whales heading the migration are the sub adults, the teenagers who aren’t ready to breed, they are more interested in exploring, having fun and checking out strange things like boats and divers! Our best in-water interactions are generally over the next month.
If you aren’t lucky enough to see a whale on your dive you are pretty much guaranteed to hear them. Whilst enjoying the wonders of Australia’s Best Shark and Ray Dive, kick back and embrace your inner hippy to the moans, groans and echoes of haunting whale song.
Male Humpbacks do the majority of the singing in the hope of attracting a mate, the same songs are repeated by the whales in any one region and slowly evolve to change over time.
There is plenty more to look forward to in June: the water is clear, and shark and manta ray numbers are high. We can’t wait to get back to showcasing nature’s wonderland.
