Hello Whale spotters. Keep an eye on the Whale sightings log S A Whale Centre
as several sightings have been recorded recently.
(Humpback and Southern Right Whales)

If you are visiting Victor Harbor - keep a lookout for
Whales. Currently two Southern Right Whales 600 m. from the shore.(vicinity
of the v/hbr skate park on the foreshore.)

Recently there was a early whale sighting vicinity off Victor Harbor.
A Humpback Whale was entangled in ropes and buoys but thankfully was freed.
A good effort by all concerned.

That is very early in the season, although not the species (Southern Right) of the regular visitors to the Fleurieu coasts.

Perhaps it got a bit lost!

Hi Werner K a Humpback has cruised around early before and there has been April whale sightings so I will keep an eye on the log.

Had a wonderful experience today looking for whales.
Firstly as the sea was very calm we went to Kings Beach - no whales sighted but about a dozen cruising dolphins.
Then Decided to observe from Freemans Knob lookout Port Elliot and as we arrived saw a Humpback surface!
We went back to the Bluff at Encounter Bay - direction the whale was heading but no further sighting.

hmm, with Sunday 14C & sunny, might be a good day for a drive down south to try our luck in spotting whales.

Whale donuts sound interesting smile

Hope the South Coast visit you are planning Werner K works out well.
Just read 2Southern Rights were sighted today travelling where we were spotting yesterday. Noted in the log as being very close to the Bluff.

Didn't see any whales while we were down at Victor, but the walk to & around Granite Island after a yummy lunch at the Hotel Victor was very pleasant.
