Humpbacks Arrive in Augusta

Humpbacks Arrive in Augusta

The whales have arrived in Augusta and we have started Season 2017 with our first sighting of six beautiful juvenile Humpback males sighted today! Two separate pods joined together and we watched as they interacted and practiced boisterous juvenile behaviour with much pushing and chasing close to the waters surface leaving behind many whale footprints.

We are very excited to see such healthy young whales arriving in Flinders Bay and looking forward to seeing what we will discover as more whales arrive. Today in the Augusta Boat Harbour after our tour we heard a commotion and looked outside to see our two favourite local Bottlenose Dolphins very happy with themselves as they had just caught a huge flathead fish for dinner! To our amazement the mother Dolphin swam straight over to our vessel and showed off her prized catch only one meter from the boat while making direct eye contact with us, what an amazing moment it was.
