Whales 6 October, 2009   3 comments

It is hard to believe just how many whales we are seeing at the moment. Before we had reached 1.5 miles off the shore, we had seen 5 pods of whales and more in the distance.

We spent most of the morning with a mother and her calf. The calf appeared to have it’s mum swimming all over the ocean. It was very curious and the mother was giving it some free reign but keeping a close eye on the little tyke from just beneath the surface.

Watching the calf of less than a couple of months of age, launch itself clear of the water had everyone oooing and arrrring.
