We braved a bit of rain and a light sea breeze this afternoon to have one of our best encounters with Swimming with Humpback Whales this season. With a long trip out wide we noticed a number of different pods in the area we were in. After following a couple of pods and an unsuccessful attempt we came across a group of large adults cruising slowly, after they showed some interest, we dropped our swimmers in and they certainly came over to us, time and time again, for about an Hour!!
All of the swimmers were, to say the least, overwhelmed with the experience of having these huge adult Humpback Whales, almost within reach. Everyone could not wipe the smiles from their faces as they came onboard.
Here is a couple of stills from a Go Pro, and whilst a bit unclear, the real thing was amazing.
