It’s hard to think of a better way to end the 2013 year than with a trip out on Whale Whisperer! Although there was some slight wind causing somewhat choppy sea conditions, it was a beautifully hot and sunny day with clear skies. As we arrived in Pearly Beach, it was easy to spot our last pair of mother-calf Southern Right whales, the mother with two calves, one her own and one an abandoned calf she’s so kindly fostering.  They were relaxing at the surface the majority of the time, but proved their curiosity to us by approaching the boat! It was wonderful to get to see just how big this mother is, especially considering she’s raising two calves! We ended today’s trips watching the Cape Fur seals and new pups playing around as well as viewing the African penguins at the island system. From everyone here at Dyer Island Cruises and Marine Volunteers have a happy, healthy and safe New Year… – Yvonne Nuessing (Marine Volunteer)
