Guide Summary and Photographs

Only one word can describe the trip today, unbelievable.  Within minutes of leaving the harbour we spotted humpback whales. Our eyes in particular were drawn to a very small animal, which at first looked like a humpback dolphin, but was in fact a very small and white humpback whale. We believe that it may have been born moments before we arrived. This is unusual as humpbacks usually don’t give birth till later in the winter in warmer waters thousands of kilometres away. Not long after leaving the mother and calf, we spotted three humpback whales. We could tell by all the breaching that these humpbacks were happy to see us and just to make the day even better we spotted three shy albatrosses. A completely unbelievable, unforgettable trip… – Rosie Bowyer (Marine Volunteer)
