The Port Stephens Whale Highway is becoming quite congested with so many pods of whales being sighted each day, we appear to be heading into the peak of the northern migration of Humpback Whales making their way north bound towards Queensland.
Again we have picked up a pod of two Humpback Whales close to the Fingal Lighthouse, there has been a bit of playful action occurring with the whales slapping the surface of the water creating a lot of white water splashing. At point one of the whales has swam in close to the vessel and surprised everyone onboard by breaching a short distance from the boat.
The crew have also reported sighting of more whales further in the distance.
