Somebody must have had a good luck charm with them today, because the wild life was outstanding!!! The day started with finding a small mating group on our first trip, who were being very active, a nice treat as we haven’t found a mating group in a while.  The males were likely just happy to have found a female in the area still willing to mate with them! On our second trip, not only did we find our second brindle calf of the season, but he put on quite a breaching show for us! His activity must have encouraged the other calves in the bay to join in, as we could see two more calves breaching around us.  Just as we thought the day couldn’t get any better, our third trip started off with a large pod of Bottlenose dolphins just outside the harbour!  It was truly an incredible day…
