Labour Weekend provided some amazing sightings for our guests this year! Humpback Whales were sighted getting slap happy, with one guy slapping his tail an uncountable number of times. He must have been just as happy to see us as our passengers were to see him! He also had a pod of Dusky Dolphins in tow who were doing leaps and flips around him, what a sight to be out on the water to see!
