Breaching Southern Right Calves

Breaching Southern Right Calves

Breaching Southern Right calves is a spectacular sight and today we watched on as the adorable next generation practiced the Language of the Whales™ beautifully. Our first interaction was with our local Bottlenose Dolphins who were slinking through the crystal conditions and showing off their breakfast. A delicious brekky of Garfish was being shared amongst…

Southern Right Whale Selfies

Southern Right Whale Selfies

Southern Right Whale Selfies this morning as a young Southern Right swam straight towards our bow and stopped us in our tracks, a big personality who wanted to socialise!

Social Humpback Pod

Social Humpback Pod

A social Humpback pod usually contains two or more individuals and this morning we met three large adults all swimming straight towards our bow.

Fat Humpback Whales

Fat Humpback Whales

There is nothing wrong with calling a Humpback Whale fat… it is actually a complement! After spending all summer long feeding on nutrient rich Antarctic Krill our Western Australian Humpback are certainly showing the affects of a summer holiday weight gain. Fat Humpback Whales means healthy Humpback Whales and during their epic migration which will…

A moody morning…
