Good luck with the whales. I'll bet if they turn up they'd be race toppers .

Saw one cruise past the wrong side of peel. Freaked me out a bit. It must have been wriggling through the mud on its belly to stay underwater. It was a proper gigantic hump-backy one too.

It looks like there are quite a number of whales of all types entering the bay. The following is an extract from the ABC (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-07-12/r ... ay/7589168)

"According to the Dolphin Research Institute (DRI), about 103 whales have been spotted in waters near Melbourne this year in 56 separate validated sightings.

"They're mostly humpback whales, but we also had several southern right whales and a pod of killer whales," DRI's David Donnelly told 774 ABC Melbourne's Red Symons."

My nephew suggested I check with the Dolphin Research Institute if I want an idea of where the whales are.

Blimey, a CAL14 would only be an entree for a killer whale! Main course would have to be at least a Noelex or perhaps a Mac. :twisted:

Chees Davop, getting a precise location from you is like extracting hen's teeth. :lol: Now I have your location Peel Island near Stradbroke Island. Actually I would have thought that whales go there fairly regularly. The Broadwater is very Sherltered, all be it very shallow and dangerous for a whale given the manner that those motor cruisers sail around.

Never been in the same area as Orcas, I hope that if I see them I can post here that what they say that they do not eat humans is true. :shock:
