One of the world’s rarest whales was caught on camera swimming in the ocean near Sydney, Australia on Thursday.

The male all-white humpback whale is named ‘Migaloo’ and he’s making his annual migration trip up the southern coast of the country.

“On average, adult humpbacks travel about a speed of about three to five knots,” said NSWNP spokesman Lawrence Orel. “That’s across a linear distance and with no distractions.”

Migaloo’s first reported sighting was off the South Coast on Wednesday and Thursday, he was seen near Botany.

He is expected to make his way past Port Stephens between 11am and 2pm Friday.

The unique whale, will be just one of an estimated 12,000 set to move along Australia’s east coast on their migratory journey north.

“It’s a very distinctive whale,” Mr Orel said. “Even if you miss Migaloo, there will be a great opportunity to get to the headlands and vantage points and see many other whales passing.”

Between now and mid-July is the peak of what has been described as a bumper whale-watching season.
