Three Amigos

Peduncle Slaps have been sighted on many of our tours over the last week and this amazing behaviour is very impressive with all age groups of Humpback Whales but the more mature the whale the bigger is the resulting splash! We joined a pod of three amigos today as they…

Incredible Blue Whale Encounter

Three Blue Whales alongside our vessel had everyone onboard stunned! A mother Blue kept her calf close to our vessel so she could block the approach of a larger Blue from getting too close. Adding to the moment was amazing bubble veils as she tried to hide her calf beh…

Pygmy Blue Whale

Mother Of Pearl Sunbathing

Mother Of Pearl was trying to catch a few rays today and tan up her belly in time for our fast approaching Spring… just kidding! Although it certainly did look like she had rolled onto her back to do a bit of sunbathing she seemed to be trying to stop Pearl from havi…

Rains Out, Schools In

A blanket of winter rain settled over Flinders Bay today and it was a picture perfect rainy winters day in this beautiful region. For our female Southern Right Whales it was the perfect opportunity to take a few moments to teach their calves some important behaviours a..

Leeuwi & Friends
