Important information about the health of the Great Barrier Reef

Dolphins of the Great Barrier Reef

A common questioned asked by visitors to the Great Barrier Reef is “will we see any dolphins?”. The answer is always a definite possible maybe, as they are certainly out there, but not always seen by observers, and it quite often depends on the weather (i.e. if it’s rough, they are seldom seen).

Dolphins belong to the cetacean group, which includes their larger relatives, the whales. Dolphins are basically toothed whales, and as such, are grouped with pilot and sperm whales, as opposed to the baleen group, which have straining plates to sieve plankton. The best known species in this group are the humpback whales.
