2014  On our morning cruise we spotted whales near South Head, but about a mile to the east we could see strong blows from a large pod of whales so opted to go out to them. This was a competition pod with at least 7 large Humpbacks who surfaced beside Cat Balou a number of times. One was head lunging in pursuit of a female.
Later we encountered several more pods with a couple of perfect breaches at close range. The last pod was a huge mother & calf. A few Bottlenose Dolphins were spotted as we returned to Eden and a couple of seals hauled out on the breakwall.
On the second trip we headed south and spotted whales between South Head & Murwaree. Passengers were thrilled with a breach from a calf right in front of the boat. With a freshening SE wind we headed back into Twofold Bay & cruised around the southern section.
