Whale Watching Moonshadow TQC Cruises Port Stephens

Today’s morning cruisers got to see a mother and calf spending plenty of time on the surface but they seemed a little confused; they didnt know what direction they wanted to go.  Eventually they found their bearings and headed in the northern direction.  Good sightings of fur seals at Cabbage Tree Island and Bottlenose Dolphins.

Our afternoon cruisers had a great show from 3 whales, spending a lot of surface time and doing double tail slaps.  One whale came nice and close to the boat showing off its pretty black fluke.

Fun fact: What is a fluke on a Whale? Whales often raise their tails, called flukes, out of the water when they dive, and flukes have characteristics that are unique among species and individuals.
