The Migaloo White Whale Research Centre believes the enigmatic white whale might be off the coast of Coffs Harbour this week.

MIGALOO could be off our coastline according to the organisation set up in his honour to track his migratory journeys.

The Migaloo White Whale Research Centre received a sighting of an all white whale off the Central Coast last week.

Taking to social media, the researchers say if it was Migaloo he's tracking up the coastline on time, and should be off the coast of Coffs Harbour by now.

"Unconfirmed all white humpback whale sighting - Norah Head NSW Central Coast. Estimated position Coffs Harbour or further nth," the research group tweeted.

 "If it was Migaloo he is running on time. Last week of June - first week of July that two week window for Cape Byron."

Anticipation surrounds this year's northern migration of the humpbacks given the sighting of an all-white calf last year.

Photos of the youngster caused a worldwide stir, amid spectacular the calf could be Migaloo's offspring.  

If you spot the all white wonder contact the White Whale Research Centre to log the sighting by calling 0466 99 11 71, emailing migaloo@migaloo.com.au, or via Twitter @migaloo1
