12th September 2017 – Humpback Whales Swim underneath Snorkelers!
It was another successful whale swim this morning, upon leaving the harbour, we were lucky enough to come across a pod of 5 playful whales. Straightaway the whales directed themselves towards and came within 100 meters from the boat so we were unable to jump in the water due to strict guidelines, so we backed off and let the whales move away from us. To our surprise, the whales moved just beyond 100 meters from the boat, so we slipped in the water and hoped they would come back and check us out, AND THEY DID! We had two whales come up from the deep and just cruise on by all of our happy customers. We could also tell we had more whales just sitting beyond our sight below us because we could see all their bubbles coming up underneath us. At the end, the whales gave us a goodbye wave and carried on swimming south.
