Despite the grey skies and swells, today was still a busy day for Whale Whisperer. We headed straight to Pearly Beach to look for the Southern Right whales. Within seconds of entering the bay a spout was spotted. However this particular whale was quite shy and remained submerged for a long period. We left this individual and headed a few meters ahead where a group of 3 Southern Right Whales was seen. This is likely a mating group consisting of a female and 2 males. All three were very active at the surface often spy-hopping to take a look at our boat. Upon leaving the bay we saw yet more groups of Southern Right Whales, taking the total of whales seen within the bay to 7. Finally an African penguin was also seen, once we headed off which is surprising as this is a long way from its home on Dyer Island. Whales, penguins could you ask for a better day…-Rosie Bowyer(Marine Volunteer)
We would just like to use today to say goodbye to Rosie Bowyer and thank her for all the effort she put in, her time here as a volunteer. Rosie we hope to see you soon and we know you will succeed in everything you put your mind to. See you soon dude.
