THE MAGIC OF AUTUMN

These last days at sea have certainly surpassed our expectations. While it was indeed freezing cold at sea, we enjoyed some really sunny days, most beautiful lights and colours in the sky as well as on the mountains, calm seas and most importantly of course: loads of whales! While at times one could see more than one individual surface at once nearby the boat, a dozen other spouts would appear in the surrounding.

SOCIAL TRAVELLERS

Humpback whales are generally considered solitary animals as they spend most of their lives on their own. However, they're known to be social animals regardless, which is why - with a bit of luck - one might see two or more individuals together.

WHALE BONANZA

October continues to be an outstanding and memorable month: large numbers of humpback whales are spotted these days - up to the point that one simply looses count of how many individuals are surfacing in the vicinity of the boats within just a few minutes.

THE WHALE'S COUSIN

It is the second largest mammal on land, grey and massive, lives mostly in water, but comes to land between dusk and dawn. It can't swim and barely float, but walks underwater. Even though being fully vegetarian, it is considered the most dangerous animal in Africa, being responsible for most human deaths annually.

OF MOUNTAINS AND WHALES

Time flies by and the first half of October is already over. Whalewise we've had a great month so far and these incredible gentle giants clearly made up for the unfavourable weather we encountered on some of the days: Several humpback whale individuals have been spotted throughout these days.

THE SECRET

Humpback whales, our most common sights, are incredible animals to observe and while they're much known for their fluking behaviour right when going down for a dive, the most distinctive physical feature are actually their long pectoral fins.

DANCING THE WAVES

The month continues successful with daily humpback whale sightings so far! Several different individuals have been spotted throughout these days and oftentimes we managed to see two or three of them during a tour.

INTO THE WILD

While the weather has not necessarily welcomed us into the new month, the whales certainly did. Throughout our tours these days we were able to observe several humpback whale individuals that had entered the bay in search for food - or maybe simply to seek shelter from the even worse weather out in the open ocean up north.
