Today we had partly cloudy skies with a bit of low rolling swell. We always say that the best way to cure seasickness is to see some whales 😎
We saw whales on two occasions – the first was a mum and calf that ended up coming right by the boat. We then saw three juveniles (males, perhaps?) traveling north.
The baby humpback was head lunging and tail slapping, while mum was chill and just breathing at the surface – blowing steam up around 3-4 metres.
In the afternoon we had two whales approach us around two nautical miles offshore. They were blowing and popping their heads up heaps – most likely a mum and calf pair. Afterward, we saw a second pod a bit further off in the distance that seemed to be more interested in their migration mission South!
