So many humpback whales to see this morning! Crew reported 7 pods totaling around 25 humpbacks – they came up to the side of the boat, there were some breaches and tail slaps and another heat run where the male was after a female whale. We even spotted a seal playing amongst the whales today and Bottlenose dolphins halfway back to the marina.
Report from the crew aboard Moonshadow V afternoon whale watch cruise; there were at least four pods of whales in the vicinity of the Fingal Bay Light House, one pod of whales came in nice and close to the vessel with a slight mugging giving everyone the chance to the view the whales up very close. Another pod a little bit further in distance from the vessel were very active; breaching, tail slapping and pec slapping.
