Guide Summary and Photographs

On a beautiful sunny day we headed out towards Danger Point. This proved to be a rewarding decision as several humpback whales were spotted throughout the trip. Our first encounter was with a very curious juvenile Humpback whale. The whale was very relaxed in our presence, often spy-hopping and played with kelp. However we left the juvenile very quickly as breaching humpbacks had been seen in the distance. It became clear that there were two separate groups – a group of 3 and a group of 2. As both groups were breaching it is likely that the two were communicating as the sounds of these breaches travel large distances under water. Finally on our way towards Dyer Island we came across another breaching individual. This individual was very playful and continued to breach right next to the boat for several minutes.
