Set for the Season!

, Set for the Season!

Another splendid day in what seems to be the rainbow capital of the world! From the interactions we have had over the last few days to kick the Augusta humpback season off it is fair to say that the season is set now as we have had a steady flow of humpback whales moving through the bay.

Today was our highest number of whales so far counting a mere 5 in the bay at one time, that leaves an estimate of 44,995 left to migrate through the area! Don’t worry though as this is only the beginning of the season and the whales will be coming in thick soon!

Another day of shy whales to start but by the end of the tour there was nothing holding them back from launching themselves out of the ocean. Spotting a whale can be hard sometimes, especially if your not sure what to expect but when a whale lunges directly in-front, it can be very hard to miss.

Today featured a breaching, head lunging, big bombshell of a whale and while we watched, our vessel was joined by a mother calf pair of common dolphins. As they surfed the swell in front and around the vessel the whale lapped up the squeals and cheers from ecstatic passengers.

If you haven’t considered it already, you should definitely be joining us for what is set to be a cracker of a season here in Augusta!
