This trip made our holiday!
We were looking for something to do for the last day of our trip to the Gold Coast from KL and our daughters unanimously agreed on a Whale charter. Right from our arrival at the wharf we could tell that we were in excellent hands as Tony and his crew made us feel very welcome and the boat was very comfortable with plenty of shelter in case of unfavourable winter weather!
After the excitement of crossing the bar out to sea, we must have only been 10 mins from shore when we spotted a huge water spout which led us to 2 humpback whales frolicking their way up the coast towards their breeding grounds. They were incredibly active and very inquisitive and seemed to be showing off for the spectators! All the while we were treated to expert commentary from Nicky the zoologist who provided a myriad of fascinating facts relating to each whale and their habits. After a couple of hours, and with inclement weather looming, we headed back towards shore and encountered 2 other groups of whales as well as spotting at least 2 other groups in the distance. The last group that we encountered were particularly spectacular, spending time "mugging" the boat and rolling and jumping and returning over and over again to pass by the boat - the 3 hours flew by and with all the activity we felt that we could have spent the whole day out there - it was superb.
The trip was very well organised and not overcrowded so everyone had a great view - the muffins were very popular with my youngest daughter too !!
Once again, many thanks to Tony, Nicky and Steve the photographer for an excellent trip.
