Another magnificant day out on the water just off the beautiful Coolangatta Coast line. Today you couldn’t have asked for better conditions as the sea was dead calm, no wind and plenty of Gold Coast Sunshine. We headed out at 9am and within 30 minutes were viewing our first pod of Humpback Whales, then there was another and another and another – pods everywhere, some heading North and some heading South and some just happy to play around the entire trip – this pod was very social going from one pod to another the entire time. The playful pod visited within meters of the boat several times, just close enough to let us see how magnificant these mammals really are.
Everyone on board were just amazed at how many whales we had on our trip today, we estimated more than 20 humpback whales of which we had a cow and calf on their way back to the Antarctic – awesome stuff indeed.
The Southern migration is in full swing now and the calves are just starting to come through – peak time for Gold Coast – Tweed Coast whale watching
Cheers till tomorrow
Carol – the whale women !!
