Humpback Whales Visiting Us

Directly after breakfast on a glorious October morning Walter chatting away with our guests from Switzerland, looked up and saw . . . . .

Oh my that was a spray! Are my eyes deceiving me? No not at all! A pod of humpbacks had come close to shore and was playing, jumping, and having fun right in front of Belle Vue’s windows. We have had the Orca come by and swim very close to our shore, in fact they were directly in our little Udina Bay. BUT humpbacks? What a sight!

Unfortunately our camera was not at hand quite fast enough to catch them jumping and slapping their tails, but some nice pictures were still had. If you look closely you’ll see a stellar sea lion accompanying them.
