Keen spotter and great photographer @psycs_pix has spotted a whale blowing at Middleton Bay (the rocky end) blowing and having a great old time in the winter waters, Get down for a look.
Great sightings and conditions on yesterday's cruise, a Southern Right Whale popped up right next to us!
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.
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
