Our crew member Rupert took this fantastic shot on his phone of a whale breach while out on the Big Duck Boat today. The whales were mainly concentrated around Miami Pde, Middleton to Basham Beach today. 3 sets of cows and calves.
2018 Whale Sighting Log
Whales along the entire coast today, a bunch near Granite Island and the Causeway, more over closer to the Victor Harbor Yacht Club, a lone whales by Pullen Island and 3 Mother and calves at Bashams Beach. Great news for all avid whale watchers. Today's photo was an entry in todays Whale Comp by Claire Rees, taken today at 2:30
What a great day for whale watching, we spotted 7 whales today, 2 Southern Right whales at Bashams Beach and 5 Humpbacks at Yilkie. Our intreped photographer friend @psycs_pix took this great shot of one of the Sourhern Right Whales at Bashams Beach.
Numerous sightings were made throughout the weekend, on water most of our action was around the West Island area, from the land traveling Humpbacks and Southern Right whales were spotted from Waitpinga to Goolwa lookout. The first calf is now suckling in the Encounter Bay Whale Sanctuary. Below is a picture by Maddie of a whale in the lee area of Granite Island.
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)
While we have had early sightings of traveling Humpback whales yesterday today was another Sunfish day, fantastic to have a few in the last week, when we previously had not seen any. No photos from today as the overcast light was awkward. We went through last years notes, activity along the coast should be increasing very soon.
One at Wright Island and one at Waitpinga Cliffs :) great photo by Elizabeth Steele-Collins
