Inspired by one of our youngest guests today, one of the juvenile Humpbacks sighted on this mornings tour was named Kaelyn and was enjoying an early morning cruise around Flinders Bay. Many whales have been quietly resting over the last two days with one whale logging on the surface for 10 minutes while we watched and another enjoying some surface rolling to get a few extra sunshine rays on his belly this afternoon… or perhaps he wanted a belly scratch?

The resting whales have been very relaxing to spend some time with as they enjoy the protection of Augusta and take a few moments to catch their breathe before continuing the fast paced northern migration. A few seemed very curious towards us surfacing close to the vessel and wondering what we were up to and why we seemed so interested in them!
