Migaloo the famous white whale spotted off the Gold Coast [video]

UPDATE @ 11.30am: Whale watchers are in for a treat this afternoon with Migaloo spotted off the Gold Coast.

The famous white humpback was seen swimming north of the Seaway entrance a short time ago.

The whales are moving at about 3-5 knots as they head north to their winter breeding grounds.


Live vision posted to social media shows Migaloo cruising through the waters.


EARLIER @6.30am: Whale watchers are set to flock to Gold Coast beaches in hope of seeing the famous white humpback Migaloo.

The white whale is expected to pass through Gold Coast waters this week after being seen at Port Macquarie on the weekend, and off Lennox Head on Monday afternoon.

Migaloo and friends are making their way north to calve and mate, as part of their annual migration to warmer waters.

This humpback migration season will see about 27,000 whales travel from southern waters past the Gold Coast to the tropics and back until November.
