Today we said goodbye to our magnificent Humpbacks as we enjoyed the very last tour for Season 2017. Heading out on another magnificent Western Australian morning we were welcomed by the local and boisterous pod of Bottlenose Dolphins who raced under our bow and seemed to point us in the direction of the whales! Two mother and calves were enjoying the comforts of Rottnest Island and seeming to understand this would be our last moments with them until next year and on our very last sighting the big female decided to wave goodbye as we watched a beautiful ta ta tail disappear into the blue until we meet again in season 2018
We also had a few interesting sights today with not only the navy submarine off in the distance but an enormous oil rig that had arrived earlier this morning and it looked like a brand new island had joined our coastline! A privilege today to have been able to enjoy the company of two mothers and their calves who will be some of the very last Humpbacks migrating south towards Antarctica. We have had an enormously successful season of sightings and interactions that we will be sharing highlights with you over the coming weeks.
We would like to say thank you to all of our guests for helping us celebrate today and joining us on the journey home back to the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour with a glass of beer and wine in hand as we toasted our whales and thanked them for their company over the last six months and for all they have taught us over another magnificent and epic Humpback Migration… we are forever grateful
