Conditions on the water today were calm & sunny. CAT BALOU began their morning whale watch sighting a large pod of Bottlenose Dolphins in Twofold Bay. It wasn’t long before we sighted whales between South Head & Murwaree. To our north we could see whales who were spending time on the surface so we headed to them and got a few huge spy hops as we approached. There were several pods of adults who at times affiliated giving beautiful fluke up dives. When we put the hydrophone in we heard the whales singing. Common Dolphins were also in the same area. Later we watched two mother/calf pods with one calf, a Type 4 spy hopping.
A coach group on an afternoon bay cruise received a bonus with a mother & calf in North Bay. We had four seals hauled out on the breakwal
