What a whale of a tail!!

We were cruising to Pearly Beach to find some Southern Right whales. When we arrived in the Pearly Beach area we were welcomed by some Bottlenose dolphins. After being surrounded by the dolphins for a while we kept on moving to find some whales.

We found a mother with her calf and four adult Southern Right whales, busy mating. On the way to the Island we came across another mother with her brindle calf. The brindle calf was just beautiful and was busy lob tailing for the time we watched it. So lucky to see that.

On our way back to the harbour we passed the seals on Geyser Rock.
