Wonderful Day for a Whale Watch

Thursday 15th September 2011

Port Stephens turned it on today, the Whales and weather didn’t disappoint as this morning’s wildlife bingo card nearly filled up and then was just about mirrored in the afternoon!

Yves and Roger had an excellent close up visit with a Humpback Whale and as you can see from Roger’s iphone pic the water was crystal clear and the sunshine provided great visibility as the whale mugged the boat on both trips.  Guests got to have an excellent interaction with a pod of Pacific Common dolphins and then had a great visit with the friendly Bottlenose Dolphins on the way back into the bay around Yaccabah Headland.

The Australian Fur Seals were basking in the sun are now definitly calling Cabbage Tree Island home and we have seen as many as 10 seals on the rocks at the same time. Another unusual sighting of an animal basking in the sun was a 2 metre long shark on this morning’s cruise however the boys couldn’t get a good enough look for an exact identification!

So another wonderful day for whale and dolphin watching and sailing the waters of Nelson Bay!
