Each Day is unique and a gift that is why it’s called the present just like cruising to find ocean creatures in their natural environment you just never know what you are going to get. The morning started off damp but could not dampen the spirit of our crew. With Captain Dan and Cruise Director Jarred the passengers where in excellent hands for the day’s events. With sunshine ahead they steamed on towards Shark Island. It wasn’t long when they came across an adult humpback whale. They got a few sightings and even a spy hop that indicated he might have been checking the landmarks by eye. The humpback was definitely in a hurry and was moving fairly fast, taking long breaths but a sight all the same. The crew also spotted a plethora of sea birds, one being the Albatross which has the largest wingspan of all the sea birds and so majestic to watch.
