Within minutes of departing on our whale watch today we had spotted whales in Twofold Bay. The first mother & calf were a resight of whales seen earlier this week. There were another two mother/calf pods also inside Twofold Bay and we had some spectacular breaching from one animal. There were many Albatross around. With the NE freshening we headed north finding more whales near Leonard’s Island. Later we watched two adults with some peduncle thrusts exciting the crowds on board. Another mother & breaching calf were a good ending to the cruise.
Today we welcomed back two researchers from the Pacific Whale Foundation, Manue who was here last year & Tizoc who will be aboard Cat Balou until the end of October.
