Humpback whale going for a deep dive
Humpback whale going for a deep dive

Nov 13 2015 – After the intense storm the day before it was a nice change to see the weather clearing up a bit, just in time for an afternoon zodiac adventure! Captain Ian headed out with a group of very excited passengers aboard! They went off in search of majestic humpback whales, and they found them! There were 3 or 4 whales feeding around Race Rocks, and the zodiac spent an amazing afternoon watching these humbling animals in their natural environment. At one point, one individual got very close to the boat, making everyone feel quite small next to the 16 meter animal!

After spending some time with the humpback whales, Ian took the passengers to William Head, a beautiful point near Race Rocks. There they found a group of about 20 sea lions porpoising! It was amazing to see these massive animals speeding through the water all together, with water splashing everywhere. They followed these animals for a while and then headed home, with everyone filled with wonderful memories of our beautiful coastline.
