Guide Summary and Photographs

Even the light breeze and cloud coverage didn’t scare of the Humpback whales. Heading out to Danger Point, we hoped to find the humpbacks that we had seen earlier in the day. Whilst searching for the humpbacks we saw three albatross making use of the windy weather as we swept along the bay. We unexpectedly came across a loose buoy which we scooped up, only to discover that it was attached to a bit of rope that had been in the ocean so long it had become covered in barnacles! Our guests and volunteers had quite a bit of fun running their hands over the little creatures and seeing them snap shut. After setting the rope aside we continued search for whales, our patients finally paid off when we spotted a spout in the distance. Two humpbacks were deep in the bay, slapping their tails and turning on their sides as we slowly approached. They provided us with a great view and a fantastic photo opportunity before doing a deep dive and disappearing. We concluded the trip with a spin around Shark Alley, where we saw seals at play and penguins protecting their nests. No matter what the weather, our bay is always full of life…- Anna Wolfson, Marine Volunteer
