"The sight of whales so close to the shore has strangers smiling to one
To the delight of many regular beach goers & visitors, the humpback whale population would appear to be growing once again. The frequency of whale sightings from the beach and other vantage points in & around Peregian Beach this year has definitely increased.
It really is a magic feeling to watch them breach and or slap their pectoral fins in what seems a playful gesture.
We are blessed.

'When a whale spends time in close proximity to a vessel, they call it a "whale mugging" because our vessel can't move until the whale departs'.
