Today we celebrated WA Day 2017 and the whales did too! We had interactions with 20 Humpback whales and two competition pods with males pushing and jostling to try and see who was the strongest. Our afternoon tour ended with a big bang as two resting yearlings awoke with breaching and head lunging just off our bow which had everyone celebrating.
These two active yearlings had been sighted on the morning tour interacting with one of the competition pods for a brief amount of time before deciding the other males were a bit too competitive. They must have worn themselves out as they were making sure to catch up on some rest on this picture perfect WA Day.
