The wind created an interesting environment change for our Humpback Whales today who have been enjoying picture perfect conditions for the last two weeks. Today it was necessary to make a little bit more noise on the surface to be heard and that is exactly what one yearling Humpback Whale was doing with continuous peduncle slaps and the occasional tail slap as he moved across the bay.
A pod of Common Dolphins also greeted us today with all calves looking healthy and strong as they stayed close to their mothers. Still feeding on mothers milk they will also be introduced to the local cuisine that includes squid, fish, crustaceans and even octopus as they grow and mature. One day when fully grown they will happily consume up to 13 kilos of this solid seafood everyday!
