Hundreds of Humpback whales pass by per day towards the end of June and the beginning of July as they begin their migration between their summer feeding grounds in the southern waters to their winter breeding grounds up north, a round trip of 10 000km.
They return from October to November with their young, teaching them along the way how to breach.
To our delight we were able to hear them, see them with their antics of tail slapping, head slapping and their breaching as they leap out of the water, this is quite a sight to see and an experience never to be forgotten.
We witnessed them aboard a whale watching excursion.
