Humpback breaching with open mouth

Mugged by two groups of humpbacks

The whales are absolutely going off in Flinders Bay. We were mugged by two groups of three humpbacks yesterday (circling the boat within 2m) spyhopping and playing with dolphins and then to top it all off we came across a couple of huge Southern Right whales 50m from the beach! We had a group of 8 Humpbacks playing with us in the afternoon. Totally amazing.

The Southern Rights usually come into the Bay a bit later in the season to give birth over near the cliffs. We are very lucky to have spotted some so early in the season.

This image is of a humpback breaching with her mouth open which is an extremely rare photo!
