Submarine Sub-Adults

A busy Flinders Bay today as we met four very curious sub-adult Humpback Whales who came right up close to our vessel looking like submarines to check everything out! Although slightly smaller than the big adults these young Whales have an intense curiosity to what is happening around them with one of the individuals seeming to hide underneath us as two adult Humpbacks cruised past close by, we made the perfect sound footprint for her to hide under

All whales sighted today were in very good health and we can clearly see in these photo’s from the dorsal fin down towards their tail flukes they are very “round” and we can barely see the back bone. This shows us that the Whales are in good health and have had a successful season in the rich feeding  grounds of Antarctica over our summer months☀
