We sailed out with very nice conditions just a little wind and even some sunshine. To our big surprise we spotted our first humpback whale only 5 minutes out of the harbour and we managed to get some nice views of this individual. After leaving this whale we did not have to travel far before we spotted the next individuals, there were at least three pairs of humpback whales and several animals by themselves. We just turned of the engines of the boat and waited and the whales started coming towards us, popping up right next to the boat. Everybody was able to get good views of the whales because they were all around and coming so close. On one of our rib tours we got a wonderful finale, a whale approached us and started tail lobbing very near the boat. Causing quite some excitement among the passengers and the crew.
