We went on the morning whale watch cruise on Thursday 19 June out of Augusta. The crew ensured everyone's safety transferring from jetty, to transfer boat, and then onto the whale watching vessel. The skipper put everyone at ease with his great sense of humour, and shared his great wealth of knowledge about the whales. The skipper and handled the boat well through some big swells, and ensured everyone's safety. There were many whales in the bay and we were lucky enough to see one breach in front of the boat. We were privileged enough to have one whale swim back and forward beside the boat for a few minutes giving us a lovely close up view. The skipper ensured he did not take the boat too close to the whales, but allowed them to approach the boat. It can definitely get chilly out there so ensure you have warm clothing and a spray jacket.
