Humpback Whales, Dolphins & Magical Flying Fish!
Hello Out There!
Well, we have had an interesting couple of days! Curious sea life has been entertaining us no end; inquisitive Humpbacks up to their usual tricks, mischievous dolphins following our boat and a sudden visit from the ever mystical flying fish! Who could ask from anything more?
We had a wonderful morning here at Whales in Paradise. We sighted two very friendly Humpbacks who showed off their aqua acrobatics to us for quite some time- enthralling our passengers with 6-7 breaches in a row! The pair then continued to head south at a steady pace. This breath-taking spectacle was polished off with a wonderful visit from a pod of super friendly dolphins- we can never tire of those sweet little faces popping up to say hello!
Yesterday's Sunset Cruise was also a great success. We came across a pod of rather coy Humpbacks who seemed to enjoy showing off from a distance- luring us over with more spectacular breaches and tail slaps. There is no mistaking the intelligence of these Humpbacks- their inquisitive nature and cheeky personalities are just incredible. Some of them can be real show-ponies! The afternoon was already a roaring success- however the grand finalÃ© (or miniature finalÃ©, as the case may be) was the appearance of a glamourous little school of flying fish. Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable them to glide for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defense mechanism to evade predators- while at same time looking rather magical! Stylish and practical- you have to love those little fish!
We can't wait to hear how this afternoon's Sunset Cruise is going- no doubt it will be a winner! See you out on the water soon.
