Guide Summary and Photographs
We set out on Whale Whisperer this morning with very little swell and clear skies. This was a good sign for finding our whales as in calm waters they will spend more time at the surface. Sure enough within minutes of leaving the harbor we spotted a Southern Right whale. We recognized this individual as ‘Eddie’, a juvenile male who is too small to mate this year. Eddie often spends a lot of time near our boat and today he did not disappoint, with several spectacular breaches and spy-hops. Eventually we had to leave Eddie and headed off towards Dyer Island before finishing our trip alongside our sister company Marine Dynamics, to see the Great Whites. We were really lucky to see such energetic behavior from Eddie and it was a real privilege for all on board… Rosie Bowyer (Marine Volunteer)
