Super Friendly Humpback! – 14/9/16

It had rained ALOT overnite in Butedale on Princess Royal Island! Having a lot of it in my boat I decided to get the water out and peek around . Two humpbacks emerged in the bay just as I was to leave.

The caretaker and I admired them quietly till they circled and began to leave . I fired up and went out into the channel and stopped to admire the scene . One of the whales bee lined it right over to me !

For the next 20 mins he was within arms reach and I took advantage of it with my iPhone (as I didnt have my camera(s)) after checking me and my dog out up close he turned and went on his/her way!!
