“A fabulous trip. We will always remember the beautiful whales!” – Ali + Katherine
“So much more than we had dared to hope for. Thank you for the experience + for the good work you do!” – The Charters Family
We saw some really incredible whale behaviour today! Our first sighting of the day was two calves swimming side by side, who appeared to be playing with each other while their mothers swam deeper underneath them. We’ve certainly seen the mother calf pairs come together before, never in such a way that the calves actually appeared to be keeping one another company, a good tactic to give mum some rest time! We then headed further into the bay where we found “Spotty” who proceeded to swim onto his mother’s belly as she “held” him her flippers – practicing a protective technique in case they encounter some Orcas on their migration back to the sub-Antarctic. Looks like “Spotty’s” almost ready for that long journey; hopefully we’ll get to see him a few more times before they head off…
