#TBT to one of my most favourite whale encounters, from July 2015 with @bluedolphintour. It was a beautifully calm day on the waters of Hervey Bay and we hung out with a couple of sub-adult whales for HOURS. πŸ’™πŸ‹πŸ’™ They came in very close, spyhopping and rolling on their sides to get a good look at us. Total chill and SO curious. Seriously amazing. 😍😍😍 #bluedolphintours @visitfrasercoast #visitfrasercoast

Humpbacks sometimes breach several times consecutively. In Exmouth, I normally see it around 6 times in a row, and after about 3 good breaches, they start running out of steam and do them half way...like head slaps, like this one. β€’ β€’ Research through the Marine Bioacoustics Lab, Aarhus University, Denmark.

In Exmouth when driving from the small airport to town, Bundegi or at the lighthouse, breaching whales can be seen so close to shore.....What a special place! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‹πŸ’¦ #breach #humpbackwhale #whale #megapteranovaeangliae #baleenwhale #marinemammal #Exmouth #WesternAustralia #ExmouthGulf #SeeAustralia #CoralCoast #Australiagram #Australia #Australia_shotz #Whalegram #WhalesAustralia #thisisWA #whalewatch #nature #ourocean πŸ‡©πŸ‡° #hav #Pukkelhval #Bardehvaler #hval #lykke #hvalsafari #forskning #havpattedyr #havbiologi #feltarbejde
Check out the humpbacks throat pleats! πŸ‹ These grooves make them in the group of rorqual whales. They can expand their throat pleats so wide to gorge on food. β€’ β€’ During the breeding season we don’t see the humpbacks open their mouths often as they are not feeding here.

Not exactly sure what message this big fella trying was trying to send us....but he does seem very excited! πŸ˜ƒ Thanks for the sending in the footage Tina Tsioutras, aboard last Sundays Wilsons Prom Whale Cruise, last of the whale cruises this week so get in quick! #wilsonsprom #inspiredbygippsland #whalesaustralia #yourhappyspace #wilsonspromontory #visitgippsland #wilsonspromontorynationalpark #seeaustralia #instadaily #melbournetodo #whales #whaleshares #whalestail
Tail flick! Missing these guys. How many days until they’re back? 😜😩 Time for me to start doing a list of what I want to do the next 2 years. I would LOVE (lovelovelove - serious bucket list item) to do Tonga and swim with the whales in 2019 but may have left my run a little late with booking and preparation, so it may have to wait until 2020. So maybe swimming with the whales in Hervey Bay for 2019? πŸ€” #planningtime #bealpha #whalesbysez @seaworldwhalewatch #seaworldwhalewatch

Didn’t expect to see these beauties in the Gulf!!! β€’ β€’ Southern right whales migrate to the southern areas of Australia to breed and have their calves, and some years one or two southern rights get seen further up north in Ningaloo. But this time we saw a mother and calf in the Gulf! We saw them the other month when the water was over 20 deg C, they must have come for a tropical holiday! πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈ β€’ β€’ Research through the Marine Bioacoustics Lab, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Wave those fins in the air like you just don’t care! πŸ‹πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I love the way this whale is slicing through the water with its pectoral fin raised, preparing to slap the water. Can you see the eye underwater? πŸ‘ The 2018 whale watching season was my biggest yet - I’m still going through and editing photos from various outings. Which is to say that there will be lots more whale photos being posted during the off season... you’ve been β€˜warned’. 😜 Countdown is on for 2019! πŸ—“ @seaworldwhalewatch #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez #bealpha
β€œWeekend! Come at me!” I hear ya, little dude. Bring on the weekend and the good weather. #TGIF #bealpha #whalesbysez
Happy Hump(back) Day! πŸ’™πŸ‹πŸ’™ Beautiful memories of our gorgeous mum and newborn calf from the end of July. The mother brought her bub close to the boat 4 or 5 times, actually nudged bub in our direction towards us (!!), gliding slowly past to have a good look at us and maybe introduce her offspring to the two-legged mammals. Such a special encounter - one I’ll never forget. 😍😍😍 Wishing the @seaworldwhalewatch crew a wonderful end to the 2018 season with today’s tour! 🀞 #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez #bealpha
Escort and calf from my last trip out this season with @seaworldwhalewatch. Not sure what happened to the calf but you can see bub has a chunk missing from directly behind the dorsal fin. β˜ΉοΈπŸ€• Hopefully it heals up well and doesn’t cause any issues as the calf grows. #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez #bealpha

Reminiscing on another wonderful season. We were very lucky to have some close encounters, like when this adult popped up right beside the boat. Just hanging out and giving us some πŸ‹πŸ’™. 😁 We love you guys too! Safe journey home, gentle giants, and enjoy your summer feast! 🦐 @seaworldwhalewatch #seaworldwhalewatch @destinationgoldcoast #wearegoldcoast #whalesbysez
It’s a fins and flukes double act for Friday! πŸ³πŸ‹ The whale watching season finishes for @destinationgoldcoast on 31 October so this weekend and early next week is your LAST CHANCE to go and see them for 2018 if you haven’t already. There are still plenty of whales making their way south, particularly mothers and their calfs! And who wouldn’t want to get an up close look at babies learning how to whale? 😁 It is one of the cutest things you’ll see, I promise! Happy Friday and bring on le weekend! πŸ™Œ Taken while out with @seaworldwhalewatch. πŸ‘Œ #seaworldwhalewatch #wearegoldcoast #bealpha #whalesbysez
Beautiful breaching baby! πŸ‹πŸ˜ We had two separate mum and bub pairs yesterday, with an escort whale that switched crew halfway through! This little tyke had a bit of fun with breaching at the beginning of our tour then I think she was tuckered out after all that jumping. πŸ˜† Conditions were perfect - it was so calm on the water! πŸ’™ Yesterday was my last trip out for the 2018 season 😭 (which finishes 31 October on the @destinationgoldcoast ) BUT the whales are all southbound so anywhere south of us will still have whales for a few weeks more yet! Get out and see these beautiful animals up close - it’s an experience to remember. β€” Special thank you to the @seaworldwhalewatch team for always running such a fantastic tour. I had an awesome time with you guys this season. You ROCK! πŸ˜πŸ‘ #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez #bealpha #wearegoldcoast
Beauty and grace πŸ‹ Mother and calf pairs beginning their migration south...onward all the way to Antarctica! β€’ β€’ I can’t get over how special Exmouth Gulf is to the whales...let alone all the baby sharks, manta rays, flying fish 🐟 , seabirds 🐦 , turtles 🐒, dolphins 🐬 and dugongs @protectningaloo β€’ β€’ Research through the Marine Bioacoustics Lab, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Everybody, put your fins/hands together - it’s Friday!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Very looking forward to my weekend of whale watching. Taking one of my close friends with me who has NEVER been whale watching! 😱😱 Keeping my 🀞🀞 we have lots of active whales wanting to show off their skills. 😊 What are you doing this weekend? @seaworldwhalewatch #seaworldwhalewatch #bealpha #whalesbysez
Tail up on Tuesday! πŸ’™πŸ‹ Some unusual markings and colouration on the underside of this humpback’s tail as it goes down on a dive. The weather is starting to clear - FINALLY! πŸ™Œ - so bring on the weekend and the whales! The 2018 season is very close to finishing 😭😭 so I think I’m going to have to make the most of it and do a few more trips. I’ve already booked this Saturday - might have to try for Sunday as well. πŸ€” @seaworldwhalewatch #seaworldwhalewatch #bealpha #whalesbysez

This little (er, β€œlittle” being relative, of course! 😳) dude was getting an eyeful of us as he breached on Wednesday. πŸ‘€ Love how curious the calves are! 😍😍Sadly, the season is coming to a close - things really slow down from beginning of November. 😭 My next trip is next Saturday morning (20 Oct) with @seaworldwhalewatch - taking a friend with me who has never been whale watching before! 😁 If you want to join us, book soon as spots won’t last long! (And 🀞🀞 the weather is much improved next weekend!) #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez @destinationgoldcoast #wearegoldcoast

Happy FriYAY! Who else is jumping for joy like this little dude? 😁 With my unexpected day off on Wednesday, I made a split second decision to duck down the coast to head out with @seaworldwhalewatch in the morning - and weren’t we blessed! 😍 Lots of mums and bubs and the calfs were full of beans! Constant breaching, lots of tail slapping and peduncle throwing... what’s the whale equivalent of a kid hyped up on red cordial? πŸ˜‚ Happy end of the week and bring on the weekend! πŸ™Œ #seaworldwhalewatch #whalesbysez @destinationgoldcoast #wearegoldcoast
