Whale Sighting Log
Another Sunfish swimming in the glassy waters of Victor Harbor today, fantastic to see these new visitors to our waters... we also had 2 Southern Right Whales in the region near Port Elliot / Middleton (no photos avail)
Last Sunday we were out cruising the islands off of Victor Harbor when a Sunfish visited, we haven't seen any before in the area. Such a beautiful animal peacefully swimming by The Big Duck. Sunfish can grow to up to 3.3m in length and weigh more then 2t!
