29 August 2022 – Playful Whales and Curious Dolphins
2Wild set out this morning with grey skies but calm water on a whale mission. The keen whale watchers were lucky to see about 4 different pods, mostly crusing slowly south back to Antarctica. These pods were slow and lazy but spent a lot of time underwater going for deep dives. After heading further out to sea we were lucky to find a small pod of 3 whales playing around on the surface. Mostly milling about and ocassionally spy hopping. Our snorkelers hopped in and were lucky to have this pod approach closely along with a pod of curious dolphins who played around the group for the entire encounter. We attempted 2 additional drops but the first one was the most successful. The sun came out just in time for the cruise home!
