There are days were we require a lot of patience, and persistence in tracking and finding wild Humpback Whales, we don’t know from one day to the next how many whales we will see during our off shore cruises. During our morning whale cruise the crew reported spotting two whale blows in the distance, but then they just seemed to disappear beneath the surface of the water. A pod of Common Dolphins did join us riding the bow wave of the Hinchinbrook Explorer and we stopped by Cabbage Tree Island to see the seals resting on the rocks.
We didn’t have to travel too far to find a pod of three Humpback Whales during our afternoon whale watch cruise aboard the Hinchinbrook Explorer. The pod was waiting for our arrival close to Boondelbah Island, all whales were quite friendly & inquisitive coming in nice and close to the vessel and swimming around us, giving all passengers onboard a great vantage to see the whales up close.
