We had an escort of common dolphins on our way out of the bay this morning.  It was a day of heads and tails, with some breaches thrown in for good measure.  We were mugged by a juvenile humpback who was very curious, lapping the boat several times.  Also a treat to see a mother and her calf just outside Twofold Bay.

The fog lifted just in time for us to head off this morning.  We headed east from Boyd’s Tower and it didn’t take long before we spotted our first pod of Humpback Whales, throughout the morning we sighted 12 – 15 whales in total.  We saw lots of flukes/tails today with one giving us a great ‘show’, multiple breaches and lots of pectoral slapping.  Others were feeding and we even had one pass right under the boat.

Heading out on our Coastal Wilderness-Whale Search cruise this morning we found a couple of small pods of common dolphins as well as an albatross.  We also spotted what we think may have been a False Killer Whale.  We only got a glimpse of it in close to the boat so we couldn’t say for certain.  Heading north east of Boyd’s Tower we came across multiple pods of Humpback Whales approx. 12 in total.

With sighting of multiple pods from shore this morning we headed straight out to the middle of the bay and travelled towards North head.  We had amazing numbers of whale sightings today seeing between 15 and 20 whales lunge feeding just south of Mew stone, with more pods of whales out just a bit further. Heading back towards Boyd’s Tower we spotted another two pods of whales cruising along. Great Whales – Great Day!

We took a detour from our Twofold Bay Discovery cruise this afternoon travelling east of Boyd’s Tower to see three pods of Humpback Whales (approx. 8 whales).  They were very active with multiple breaches as well as tail and pectoral slapping.  They certainly put on a great show for us today.
