Today was a day for close encounters, not only did the whales come beautifully close to our vessels as they were busy feeding but the whales were located very close to the harbour! So it only took us about 10 minutes to find the whales today, which meant we could spend longer with these fascinating animals. We had three humpbacks all travelling and feeding together coming up to the surface with their mouths full of water and food, which was just awesome to watch. The weather was also beautifully sunny and warm and therefore a splendid day to be out at sea.
