Today's best shots.

A Great White Shark with a notch out of its dorsal fin.

Here you get a better look at the top fin.

Shark skin heals very fast, so soon this dorsal fin will be healed up. It does not regenerate, but they are able to carry on despite many injuries that one would believe hampers the shark.

We had incredible seascapes today.

Our Southern Right Whales, who’ve really started to come back in.

Heading into shallow water.

We spent time with 3 whales today.

Another stunning sky.

It’s always awesome to watch these whales move through the swell.

We had two adults that we traveled with for quite some time.

Here you can see just how different the callosities of whales can be. The whale closest to us has very prominent white patches where as the whale in the background has far less.

Enjoying the sun and salty sea spray.

One of the island keepers picking up litter on the waterline. It is so great to see people doing their bit to keep our oceans clean.

Penguins relaxing on Dyer Island.

Hospital Rock with some sleepy seals.

Some thermo regulation going on.

Wiping her little face.

A closer look at Hospital Rock.

No one sleeps as soundly as a seal.

Taking in the sights.
