Winter days in Port Stephens don’t get much better than the conditions we have experience over the last couple of days, with warm sunny days, light breezes and good sea conditions.
The Hinchinbrook Explorer has departed the dock at 10am with our passengers primed for a fantastic morning searching for Humpback Whales off shore. Cruising out through the headland at Shoal Bay and on towards Fingal Island we have located a pod of three Humpback Whales, we have spent a good amount of time with this pod as they traveled in line with Boondelbah Island. All whales were only doing three to four minutes sounding dives, making tracking the pod a little easier.
On the afternoon whale cruise 1 adult and 2 juvenile Humpback Whales were sighted south of Big Island performing a few big breaches and tail lobs. As always it’s a fun time heading back into the bay meeting with the Dolphins as they ride at the bow of the vessel.
