Cold & calm today. Cat Balou began their morning cruise sighting Bottlenose Dolphins which are always fun to watch. Towards Murwaree we had four pods of whales and we followed a mother & calf for some time before heading north. We put the hydrophone in & could hear a whale singing. As we headed north we picked up Common Dolphins and later another pod of Bottlenose Dolphins. Near North Head we watched a pod of 4 – 2 mother/calf pods who had affiliated. Suddenly one of the calves started to breach, then one mother launched herself out at close range – AWESOME!
The afternoon trip sighted two mother/calf pods with one adult tail & pec slapping. One pod was a resight of this mornings M/C pod.
