Hinchinbrook Explorer ventured out with a small group today at 10.00am with plenty of room to move around the boat with sensational vantage points. A lone whale was spotted, and just as curious as our passengers, decided to venture over to the vessel for a closer look at our passengers, wondering what all the fuss was about. The whale continued to ‘pose’ with some spy hops, tail lobs and a nice show of pectoral fins before moving on its way.
Vantage point: Just off Fingal Island.
Fin Fact: whale mugging” – an all-purpose term marine biologists use to describe whales that choose to swim within close proximity of a boat.
