The appearance of a small humpback whale amongst the fleet anchored at Snug Cove wharf this morning caused quite a buzz.  We normally don’t see humpbacks so close to shore during the annual northern migration so this was a pleasant surprise for those who happened to be enjoying the beautiful spring morning at one of the cafes at the wharf.  Keep an eye out folks – as humpback numbers are increasing at about 10% per annum, we are likely to see more whales more often here in our whale town!

Thanks to our friends from Cat Balou Cruises for the images.  Visitors wishing to know more about the amazing whale-watching opportunities on the Sapphire Coast – or just about anything you need to know about these magnificent creatures should visit the following websites:
