A Breaching Whale On The Winter Solstice, 21 June 2019

Today's Best Shots.

Sunrise on the shortest day of the year.

A scenic Danger Point with a reef breaking below.

The sky was stunning this morning.

A Shy Albatross, one of our avian friends, soaring by.

Look at this beautiful little whale.

This whale was breaching with his eyes open, checking us out.

Look at those backstroke moves. Humpback Whales are certainly champions in endurance, with the second longest migration of any whale in the world.

This little one really put on a show for us.

Humpback Whales have the longest flippers in the whale kingdom, up to 1/3 of the body length.

We also got a couple of full breaches from this playful little giant.

Another look at a full breach.

Showing off in perfect lighting.

Baleen whales have two blowholes, where as whales with teeth will only have one.

We had the most fantastic time with this Humpback before heading towards Slashfin.

A Copper Shark comes in for a closer look.

We also got to see a Great White Shark here.

The African Penguins were also out in abundance today.

An army of penguins marches along.

These birds look like they mean business.

Some Cape Fur Seals giving us a look.

The Prince Port.
