Yesterdays trip gave us a fantastic wealth of different wildlife.

Zooming out towards Race Rocks to start with the group got to enjoy the weather and the scenery.

Hearing and smelling the residents of Race Rocks before they were clearly in view our group were pleased to see the Seals and Sea Lions.

We were also pleasantly surprised to see Harry the Sea Otter again. Floating around in the kelp which he uses to help him not get swept away by the fast currents of Race Rocks.

Heading North past Victoria Harbour towards Albert Head the group was greeted with the sighting of a Humpback Whale. These creatures are sometimes nick names the angels of the sea because of their elegant movements, despite their size.
