Whale Tails and Spectacular Breeches….


Whale Watching. Its something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.

In April I won the photography competition via Whale Watching Sydney’s facebook page..

With Sydney putting on a magnificent winter day, we secured our spot on the boat with the hope of seeing some sort of whale activity.

Our harbour is always magnificent and today was no different. I never tire of looking at the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge or Fort Denison.

We sped out through the heads and spotted our first whales about 8 miles out to sea.

The whales migrating south are usually found further out to sea in the East Australian Current.

This strong southerly current carries the whales during their southern migration to Antarctica.

There were two humpback whales and they gave us quite a show for a few hours.

These beautiful gentle mammals are a wonder to see. I loved just being near them.

And of course the camera was going click click click 🙂
