Whale Report 6th October

It’s Friday and the Whales know it.!!

As our introduction to whale watching this morning we had a mum and calf breaching, tail slapping and tail lobbing just 2 mins out from the headland.  A big male moved in and the mum’s behaviour radically changed.  She quickly took her calf further out to sea and had longer down times.  We pod hopped our way to the blinker, 4 nautical miles offshore, and we hit the jackpot with another mum and calf.  The calf breached for 15mins straight, much to our delight.  Not too far off we found  10 whales swimming in typical formation which was an incredible way to finish off the morning.

Wacky Doo again..!! We spotted our first pod only 15mins into our cruise and they started with a bang!  We came across a little calf, which we could see was a little girl, and she breached over and over for the first 30mins of our trip.  She was only interrupted by a pod of two males who wanted mum’s attention.  We watched one of the males perform a series of peduncle throws out of frustration.  It was a perfect end to the afternoon.
