Southern Right

June 7th Whale Report. After a couple of days off because of weather we head out into King George Sound and find a large Southern Right whale 2/3 the way out to Breaksea Island. We follow what we believe is a pregnant cow, as she slowly heads in towards Mistaken Island. The wind strength is increasing and Bernie can not see any blows from humpbacks travelling deep so we decide to follow this whale. At times this whale pulls its tail from the water but alas I did not get a picture. We leave this whale and cruise back to the marina via Albany's Historic Whaling Station. We will be keeping a look out for this whale over the coming weeks as I am sure there will be a calf arriving soon.
