Today was our last whale watching cruise for 2016 and the whales didn’t disappoint.
The weather tested us with low visibility and showers and we travelled for an hour before finding an active mother & calf breaching off Haycock Point. We followed this pair for over an hour with the calf spy hopping and rolling around close to Cat Balou. A pod of Common dolphins were also found as we watched the whales and delighted passengers as they raced in front & behind the boat.
What an amazing season this has been with more mothers & calves seen than ever before in our 27 whale watching seasons at Eden. We also managed to have a 100% success rate in sighting whales this season!
It has been wonderful catching up with many of our regular whale watchers who visit Eden each season to come whale watching with us and to make new friends this season.
If we have Cat Balou next season we look forward to doing it all again!
