Daily Sightings Report

Did you know that many whales are in fact toothless?
They use a plate of comb-like fibre called baleen to filter small crustaceans and other creatures from the water.

The arched lower lip of a whale can often make it look like it is smiling however, this isn't a "real" smile as the blubber in the head of the whale prevents the muscles of the face from reaching the surface.

We'd like to thank Jane Ong for this fantastic photo of a humpback whale from our 11am cruise.

You can see right up close and see this big guy's lower lip or "smile"!
