Guide Summary and Photographs
Today’s single whale trip rewarded us with some truly spectacular views, despite the choppy water and occasional sea spray. Reaching past the sands of Pearly Beach we came upon a mother Southern-Right Whale, her calf and the abandoned calf she’s fostering. They were nice enough to approach the boat and present us with a few ‘hello waves’ with their pectoral flippers as they did some always-enjoyable barrel rolls. This also gave us an opportunity to appreciate their many renowned callosities. Shortly after this, we found ourselves watching some extraordinary baby whales breaching, with the calves launching nearly completely out of the water. This put a sure smile on everyone’s faces, and we were even lucky enough to see another one of the mother whales giving it a go. These energetic baby whales surely made for the highlight of the day. A great day at sea for the Whale Whisperer… – Jonah Darling (Marine Volunteer)
