We wanted to see whales so badly, especially these Humpback whales, pictures are great but the actual experience is like a rush of adrenaline and will stay in your memory forever. We chose to go on a whale watching trip with the Fantasea cruise on their three hour trip and we were not disappointed. The crew are fantastic advising you when there is a sighting and abiding by their ethics and the law does not to be closer than 100 meters, they did us proud.
The full breach
The whale taking an inquisitive look at us
The tail slap
Showing us tail first
On the way back the crew was notified of some fur seals on a ledge, so they took us to have a look
Love this guys moustache
He seemed to be waving us goodbye as we left
