SWIM WITH BABY HUMPBACK WHALES
Where: Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
Getting up close and personal to a humpback whale in the wild is a pretty special thing, but seeing a whale with her calf takes it to an entirely different level. Every year around 40,000 humpbacks journey along the Western Australian coastline on their annual migration from the icy Antarctic to their breeding grounds in the warmer waters of the Kimberley. By September, they are heading south again, with their newborn calves. Ningaloo Marine Park, off the coast of Exmouth and Coral Bay (a two-hour flight from Perth), is the only place in Western Australia where you can swim with these majestic creatures. If you listen closely you may even hear the males sing their courtship song.
