Whale Watching Moonshadow TQC Cruises Port Stephens

We have not needed to cruise too far to find whales during today’s 10am Whale Watch Cruise, straight past the Fingal Island Lighthouse Cruise Director Jaclyn has reported there are ‘truck loads of whales’ There must be at least ten pods, each consisting of 1 – 3 Humpback Whales within in each pod. All whales were spending a good amount of time of the surface of the water, with the occasional dive to show off their beautiful tails. At one point a pod has swam nice and close to the boat, and out in the distance there are other Humpback Whales breaching.

It was lunch time for a lone seal spotted in the middle of the ocean swimming near to the whales, he was darting about and obviously on the hunt for fish.

We have also been joined by a couple of pods of off shore dolphins, with a pod of Common Dolphins and then the Indo Pacific Dolphins appearing.
