Every day is different whale watching and you just never know what you are going to find. Today after watching several pods of adult whales we headed back into King George Sound and found a Humpback cow and calf heading out of the sound. They were not wanting to be watched so after we confirmed that we did have a new born calf we headed back to the marina via the coast.
As we got close to Whale World / Discovery Bay Tourism Experience we found one of the smallest cows with a new born calf I have ever seen. Picture attached although you cant tell from this photo.
They tell us that Humpbacks reach sexual maturity at 10 years of age and 10 metres in length. This cow was just 10 metres long.
