Whales 8th August   Leave a comment

Today on Spirit of Gold Coast we had a whale encounter like no other. For 45 minutes we were entertained or maybe it was the whales that were entertained, with uninterrupted surface play within arms length of the boat. We had spy hopping, pectoral slapping, tail slapping and some beautiful displays of brilliant white bellies. For me, it was like the times I have encountered leopards in Africa. My legs went like jelly, I trembled with excitement and tears came to my eyes, as I watched and tried to photograph these majestic, gentle, giants of the sea. For those on board it certainly was a day never to be forgotten.
