Humpback Whale Tinder unfolded in front of our eyes today as a beautiful female Humpback, named Bella after one of our young Pod Members onboard, began to communicate her Tinder bio in the Language of the Whales™.

First Humpback Calf Sighting Season 2019

First Humpback Calf Sighting Season 2019

A big surprise today as we sighted our first Humpback calf for season 2019 during our afternoon experience in Flinders Bay, Augusta. The first inkling something was different about this pod was the extremely quiet behaviour and low profile they were keeping. At first we sighted just the one large adult when suddenly a tiny…
