The Humpback Whales have arrived in Geographe Bay, Busselton

The Humpback Whales have reached Geographe Bay during their southern migration down the West Australian coast.  The stop here to rest and play before heading off on the last leg of their long journey down to Antarctic waters to feed.  They exhibit a completely different attitude to when they are on their northern migration when they are trying to pair up before they reach the breeding grounds.

In Geographe Bay they roll around, come up to the boat to check us out and it is not unusual for them to “mug” the boat – swimming around and under the boat, spyhopping and just wanting to check us out in general.  You can feel that all of the pressure is gone and they are just chilling!
