Whale Sightings

Back to Whale Sightings

16 August 2022


On this morning’s Whale Watching Cruise the Hinchinbrook Explorer located several pods of whales with a group changing directions several times between north and south.  At one point the vessel was sandwiched between two pods with the view on the right hand side only metres from the display of breaches and slow tail dives.  While offshore Common Ocean Dolphins were sighted and when entering the heads we were visited by the Bottlenose Dolphins.

During the afternoon one whale was heading north and conducted a big breach about 20 metres from the vessel with several passengers receiving the affects of the splash!  Again lots of Dolphins were spotted and several birds consisting of a white breasted Sea Eagle and Pectorals.
