We had a great mix of very active competition pods today and many relaxed pods who seemed very curious to come over and say hello! Big males hustled through the bay and even raced across our bow on the morning tour which was incredibly exciting to be right in the middle of an intense Humpback competition pod.
On the afternoon tour we met two sleepy individuals who seemed more than happy to sleep away the afternoon just a few meters from our bow and get some good rest in before continuing their journey north. Gannets and Crested Turns dived close to our vessel while feeding today and we absolutely loved the beautiful hats some of our guests were wearing to keep warm.
