Whale Watching 28 October 2017

Well just when you thought the season was winding down we have another incredible day of every type of animal behaviour. Our morning started with a mum head lunging and pec slapping and close encounters with the little calf. We then came across a huge competition pod of 10 male whales all very surface active and pushing and shoving to get the lead spot. At one part of cruise all ten whales came to the surface all at once with whales blowing everywhere. Afternoon cruise started with huge expectations from everyone onboard and a mum and calf combination did not let us down. We “got mugged” by the mum and calf which is incredibly special to get any sort of close encounter but this little calf was very curious of us and swam around the boat 4 or 5 times giving everyone the closest of looks of a beautiful 8 week old baby whale. We we’re about to leave and head for home when out of nowhere the little guy performed a fully airborne corkscrew breach right alongside us WOW and WACKYDOO instantly the excitement levels grew as we watched this little animal breach for the next 20 mins… Close encounters muggings and breaches was the topic of conversation by all onboard. 10/10 day
