A sensational calm, sunny day on the water today.

Cat Balou rounded North Head and spotted at least 6 pods of whales towards Leonard’s Island. Most of these whales decided that it was not time to play although we spotted a calf breach several times but not at close range. Later we saw activity to the east and headed towards a pod of two pec and tail slapping. These turned out to be great whales with an awesome display of pec slapping right beside Cat Balou. Very clear singing was also recorded vis the hydrophone.

The later trip found several active mother/calf pods with lots of breaching from the calves.
