Whale Sightings Report Wednesday 27th July 2011
4 pods of whales with 6 whales, first pod by 9.20am. Had our first whale going SOUTH !!! Can’t believe it – it is far too early – but there he was going for his life south !! Pod 2 was breaching on the horizon, pod 3 at 10.05am breaching heaps, we followed this pair till around 11am, they tail flicked, tail lobbed, came under the boat, breached at back of boat, came next to boat – what a great pair!! Then we came across another pod of 2 and they joined this pod and they all came close to the boat !!
The afternoon trip we had 5 pods, first pod by 2pm, and the first 4 pods were all divers, no fun there !! and then we had a pod of 2 at 3pm and what a treat – they were very happy whales spending time on the surface for us, happily pec fin slapping next to the boat, here is a photo – isn’t he beautiful? You can just see the other whale behind him – great pair of whales
