Guide Summary and Photographs

It was a great day on the Whale Whisperer with not a cloud in the sky. We made our way towards Pearly Beach where sighting have been common in the past few days. Sure enough a juvenile Southern Right whale was seen within minutes of being in the area. Initially the whale was quite shy and would dive for long periods. However it began to approach the boat and even followed us for a short while as we moved on. It is likely that this was a calf from last year due to its small size and will not be mating this season. As we moved past Pearly Beach we spotted 2 humpbacks breaching in the distance. As we are in the middle of their breeding season it is likely the 2 were male and female. To cap things off we had a close encounter with an albatross, which circled us several times and was clearly investigating us. What a remarkable day with remarkable animals…- Rosie Bowyer (Marine Volunteer)
