It was a bleak day on the water, grey skies & cold. CAT BALOU spotted a mother & calf within minutes of leaving the Eden wharf, but as this pair were very quiet we headed out in search of more whales. During the trip we watched 5 pods with some very close encounters. Common Dolphins were also seen as we approached the third pod and the whales were interacting with them. One mother we watched had damage to her fluke caused by a Killer Whale.
