End Of Season 2016

Summer is here and our wonderful whales are now enjoying a long awaited meal in the cool and nutrient rich waters of Antarctica. They will spend the next few months feeding and regaining their strength before they return once again along the West Australian coastline t…

Bye Bye Whales

Summer time is calling as we say goodbye to our Humpback whales until next year and although we will miss them our local family pod of 15+ Bottlenose Dolphins and friendly Australian Sea Lion certainly made our day with their playful and inquisitive nature

City Views

Our beautiful city and a breaching Humpback calf on another magnificent day in Western Australia! This little one was practicing some dominant behaviour towards a large male Humpback who was trying to impress mum with some pec slapping and see if she would accept him a…

37℃ Flukes Up

Our first warm day in a very long time and our whales were enjoying the crystal clear waters along our coastline as we all soaked in the sunshine. Humpback whales sighted today and we loved watching the unique tail flukes of an escort pod each time they surfaced to rep…

Jumping Cookie

We decided to name this young Humpback calf Cookie today after the many cookie cutter shark bites he had all over him and he gave us all a big surprise when we watched little Cookie breach! There was also another very uniquely marked mother and calf pod today with both…

Flying Fish

The local Bottlenose Dolphins were making some flying fish very nervous and they certainly caught our eye as they flew millimetres away from the waters surface skimming along, desperately trying to confuse the highly intelligent Bottlenose. A mother and calf Humpback k…

Adventurous Yearling

Today we met the most outgoing yearling Humpback who certainly surprised us with his confidence and persistence in wanting to interact with everyone he meets! Our first encounter was with a young mother and calf pod who seemed to have just met this young male. Mum was…

Grace Ocean

Magnificent vessels of the sea and some relaxed mothers and calves were sighted today. A young female Humpback was catching up on some rest with possibly her very first calf and although she was only a small female both herself and her calf looked healthy. The more mat…

Patience Is a Virtue

Sometimes when whale watching we come across a pod that may be a bit quieter than others, this morning a young female and her calf were keeping a low profile and spending their morning logging. After a while they would resurface and replenish their oxygen levels before…

Magnificent Eight

Four female Humpbacks and their four beautiful calves were all mingling today and we were front and centre amongst this very large and sociable pod! It all began when we met the first mother/calf pod who came right up to our vessel and the young calf was enjoying some…

Gentle Interaction

There are many large females arriving in the resting grounds and now is the perfect opportunity for their calves to learn and play through gentle interactions with other mother and calf pods. Today we had three mums and three calves all getting to know each other and h…

Mum…. ‘Look At Me!’

Anyone who has young Children in their lives may be aware of the term mum.. mum.. mum.. mum.. look at me! Exactly our thoughts today as this young calf decided to breach only a few meters away from our bow and almost land directly on top of her mum
