The first whale watch cruise of 2021 has arrived! With the start of our Early Bird Whale Watch Cruise departing at 11am on board the Spirit of Port Stephens, we certainly were eager to head off shore and see the first Humpback Whales starting their northern migration.
Although a little bit elusive, we can positively report the sighting of a Humpback Whale. Seen close to the Fingal Lighthouse, heading north bound the whale was content in continuing its journey along the Port Stephens coastline.
Our local Port Stephens Bottlenose Dolphins made a dramatic special appearance, showing their acrobatic and leaping ability whilst riding the pressure wave at the front of the vessel.
