Flinders Bay Southern Rights

Southern Right Whales Irwin and her calf Colourpatch were sighted this morning and we are amazed every time we see her calf, he is growing so big! Looking closely at his unique white marking I wonder if you can see the crocodile jaws hidden there? That is why we decided to name mum after our much loved Australian Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. The stronger winds expected in the afternoon showed our guests onboard how important the nursery grounds are to these family pods as they move in and around the reef lines to take shelter from the winds and swell.
