Whale that was an EPIC long weekend!

We’ve had the most incredible encounters whilst whale watching over the long weekend down here in the southwest! 

From the world’s LARGEST animal, the BLUE WHALE to the most EPIC and close breaching humpbacks that we’ve EVER encountered, it sure is hard to choose which tour was the best! 

Thanks to the SouWest whale monitors at Point Piquet we now know that we’ve had more blue whale sightings in September than ANY other year! October is definitely the month to head out on a tour with us if you’re wanting to lay your eyes on these incredible ocean giants, which weigh a whopping 180 tonnes and span 33m in length! 

Yesterday afternoon we were treated to the most energetic female humpback, showing off and BREACHING for over an hour right alongside the vessel. Our customers (and crew) were even able to get whale selfies (the whale-fie) as she repeatedly launched her 45-tonne body out of the water! 

We were also so spoilt with the first two sunset tours of the season! Glowing orange skies and large pods of humpbacks right at our bow made for the most surreal end to an EPIC long weekend down here in the southwest. Stay tuned for more whale updates and don’t forget to check out the pics!
