Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure Sept 5 9am

The 9am Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure took us East to Hein Bank. Here Capt. Scott spotted Minke whales, not one, two or three but four, These fast moving baleen whales were feeding, working the shallow waters of Hein Bank. These are the second smallest baleen whale, measuring up to 35 ft., typically 23-24 feet long. It was great to see so many in such a small area as we gently drifted in the flat calm water. Our Skipper then took us South West of Victoria and put us on scene with a pair of Humpback Whales. These gentle giants appeared to be in a resting phase. Gently rising to the surface for a breath then gliding back under the clam water. Just another wonderful adventure with Prince of Whales.
