Had my mate Lee Parkhouse up this week for his honeymoon with wife Sara - who requested a trip out to see the whales to balance the fishing
It was a stunning day to be on the water & it didn't take long to find our 1st whale
While drifting for lunch - we had a couple of visitors arrive unannounced !
I have to say whale breath has a unique smell
It is an amazing experience when these huge mammals decide to interact with you up close !
Now that's just showing off
They really appeared to want to interact with us and you could see them checking us out with their huge eyes !
You start to get a feel for their size in this shot !
Newlyweds Lee & Sara
I am sure Sara & lee will remember their honeymoon in Hervey bay - where they got to share it with the whales !
We where actually joined by two more adults after mum & calf left us - and where mobbed by 6 others at the same time on our way home !
Posted a little video of the encouter on Utube as well -
