[Tara Pacific] Heron Island, Whales Paradise

Heron Island and the entire Southern Great Barrier Reef are prime breeding grounds for humpback whales.

During our stay in the marine protected area of Capricornia Cays National Park, we were able to meet mothers and their calves a few months ago.

Moments of infinite poetry captured by two of the sailors on board, François Aurat and Nicolas de la Brosse.
