This morning 2 humpbacks came right up to the boat and swam underneath (mugging) – we also saw pectoral slaps and tail lobs on board Hinchinbrook Explorer. On MV Spirit we spotted 3 humpbacks spending lots of time on the surface showing off some very gentle tail lobs and head lunges. There were dolphins as we headed back to the harbour.
This afternoon MV Spirit spotted a couple of whales who came up behind the boat twice and proceeded to swim alongside the boat spraying passengers as they came to the surface. There was also a large pod of Oceanic dolphins that jumped on the bow wave.
