Mothers and Yearlings

Flinders Bay was filled with Humpback yearlings this morning and we sighted three of these yearlings who were still with their mum. One pod displayed some amazing surface behaviour with the yearling breaching while mum rolled onto her back and showed everyone onboard what an inverted tail slap looks like… rather impressive!

While we were with the same mother and yearling a pod of Common Dolphins decided to come over and say hello to the Humpback Whales which is very special to see, it does happen a lot but for human eyes it is all about being in the right place at the right time! After a quick interaction the Dolphins continued moving towards a large bait ball that had caught the attention of many birds including diving Australasian Gannets, Crested Terns, Seagulls and Antarctic Skua.
