Watching (or mostly looking for) Whales

Sydney Harbour

View Adventures in the Southern Hemisphere, Part 1 on smr1188's travel map.

We went whale watching the other day, last week. Sydney is right along the whale migration for mostly humpback whales, though southern right whales are less frequent but also commonly seen. We're nearing the end of the migration so we knew there wouldn't be as many as if we'd come a month earlier...but we still got to see 1 adult, and follow him for a little bit.


We also spotted some sharks, though not sure what kind, and a lot of sea birds.
On our way back, in the harbour, we even saw a pod of dolphins checking out a kayaker! So wish I coulda been that kayaker! They were right along side the kayak all swimming about, that was really neat.

It was another gorgeous day and we got a great boatride through the harbour to Many and back as well.
