With their annual migration from the southern Antarctic feeding grounds around May, whale species travel northward to breed and give birth in the warm South Pacific waters and return south around October.
Fiji is primarily home to the Pilot Whale but over 17 species of whales and dolphins have been known to visit the Fijian waters with 9 species considered as semi-regular visitors with Humpback, Sperm, Minke and False Killer Whales being the most commonly sighted in and around the warm protected waters of Beqa Lagoon.
In 2003 Fiji declared a whale sanctuary within its 200 nautical mile territorial waters creating a sanctuary covering 1.26 million sq. klms offering protection for migrating, breeding and calving whales.
