Whales and Dolphins on the Great Barrier Reef

A huge draw of the Taka liveaboard trips is the possibility of seeing minke whales during their winter migration. I did have the opportunity to snorkel with some friendly visitors and get a few snaps. We were also treated to a dolphin show of sorts. Dozens of the creatures hitched a ride at the front on the third day of our trip and spent about 15 minutes jumping and swimming alongside us.
