Whales galore!! Since the 1960’s end to whaling, Morton Bay hasn’t seen many of these gloriously large creatures swimming in their waters for nearly fifty years. Unbelievably, our lucky sailors witness pods of whales at every sonic splash against the South Passage. Mothers and calves were a dime a dozen as the ship sailed through the waters; with even a few friendly dolphins joining the whales in their parade of fun. The passengers undoubtedly enjoyed the whales visit and can’t wait for another day touring through Moreton Bay on the South Passage.
By mid-afternoon, the weather became slightly choppy and the boat was tipped so far horizontal, it was a struggle to walk from on side of the ship to the other. Not to mention the poor cook, trying to make her guests a fabulous meal sideways! Nevertheless, she succeeded and every mouth on the South Passage was fed and happy.
Overall, the tour through Moreton Bay was a raging success with her passengers; they witnessed a delight at every corner, learnt a thing or two around the art of sailing a boat (successfully) and are eagerly awaiting their next day of ultimate adventure!
