Today we have seen peaceful Humpbacks in the Sound. Then for 30 minutes 8 Humpbacks dashing...dashing...slapping and half jumps close to us...coming and going.
Yesterday...same water .. same boat...4 Southern Rights laying on top of the water, close to us...calmly courting.
Albany - a place of wilderness; shockingly wild and beautiful.
23 July 2017
Southern Rights - 4 of them lying beside our boat Sail-A-Way - hard up against a headland in a calm patch of water...ignoring us as they pursued courtship!! Amazing!!
18 July 2017
Most of the 15 or so Humpback whales were "full of energy" today, dashing about in a huge rush - then close to Bald Head - others in pairs, dawdling about! Wonderful!!
12 July 2017
Strong winds forecast...but we went out - had fun, found whales...AND 2 Southern Right whales found us. Came up close and we had a good look. Nobody minded the rain!! Joy!

This amazing whale season continues for Sail-A-Way, Albany Whale tours. Today we had humpbacks breaching all round our boat, often two at a time. Adult humpbacks coming up to our boat then swimming around the boat - often below us...chasing each other...beside us...often leaving us speechless.
10 July 2017
Twelve Humpbacks in 4 pods...forming groups....splashing and charging...often close to our boat...then dashing away...then back beside, under, close to us as they went about their lives. Magical!! check out pics on our Facebook pages.

A Humpback mother, juvenile and calf in sheltered waters - a close look. Very still...with 6 more very active in the choppy waters off Bald Head. A great adventure.
30 June 2017
Sixteen passengers - all overjoyed. Whales breaching 10 metres from our boat!!
28 June 2017
We have been in company with Humpbacks every day of June...seeing breaches, tail slaps and the beauty of these animals in many ocean behaviours...calm and adventurous. Come and see for yourself.
King George Sound had whales easily found...everywhere - and when we turned off our motors and sailed in silence...the whales responded. Quiet music...inquisitive and enquiring whales - as one of our passengers said in the silence.... shockingly beautiful....as she tapped her heart.
21 June 2017
Two Humpbacks heading to Bald Head. Only stayed a short time. Went in behind Breaksea Island to see the seals. Our reward was also 3 Humpbacks tail slapping and showing off!
17 June 2017
We reckon 10-ish whales - very trusting, but not very active...so everybody comes back free!!!
13 June 2017
One lady said...."We are blessed"... Three whales separately came and lay beside our boat...then for over half an hour, other breached repeatedly, close by.
10 June 2017
We headed straight for the breaching whales - eventually to be surrounded - twenty breaches close by as well as two large Humpbacks coming close to our boat.
9 June 2017
Seven or eight Humpbacks in a breaching group - often quite close to us, but I enjoyed the two large animals that floated beside, behind and under us for a long 'trusting' time.
8 June 2017
Sailing off Bald Head a number of breaches. One Humpback swam behind us in our wake, surfing along like a dolphin. A great morning.
7 June 2017
Distant breaches - distant sightings - distant blows - distant dolphins....then...at long last delightful company of humpbacks right at our hulls for a good long look!!
6 June 2017
Two distant breaches attracted us to three Humpbacks as they journeyed on their north migration...a lovely sighting
5 June 2017
Many Humpbacks at a distance - but at last....one wit dolphin companions came to our boat and ooched close by.
4 June 2017
Three Humpbacks came right under our trampolines and past our stern, staying for quite a while. Dolphins all round the boat....many with babies!
31 May 2017
Nine Humpbacks today, of all sizes and ages....Five showed very aggressive behaviour towards each other....tail slaps and breaching. Thrilling to watch from the boat.
29 May 2017
Three Humpbacks - metres from Sail-A-Way - staying for half an hour with many breaches close by. A great start to the season!
