A chance encounter with a humpback whale

Today was another day of not so good weather for whale watching, especially in terms of the bad visibility which reduces our chances of finding whales and dolphins. Nevertheless, our clients today set out to try their luck in these conditions. You never know what you might find if you don't try, and today our clients and crew were in for a surprise. Just outside of the marine they came across a humpback whale! Not once, but twice! During both our morning and afternoon tours this humpback whale was no more than a few hundred metres out of the marina. In the morning our whale watchers also encountered some common dolphins and an ocean sunfish and in the afternoon a loggerhead turtle. Although the wet weather didn't allow us to get photos of the animals today, the best part was taking the chance and actually seeing them.
