One of our crew members Rupert is currently watching a whale breach multiple times over and over at Goolwa Beach, it is to far out to identify, but it is having a whale of a time entertaining onlookers! If you are in the area it may be worth having a quick look.
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!
