“Half-an-hour later Ken spotted our first whale, then another, and another and another – as the boat slowed to an idle we seemed to be surrounded by whales, some closer and others much further away.

One of the hallmarks of Southern Rights is their intense curiosity and before long, six whales had taken up sentry around us, lob-tailing and spy-hopping to take a closer look at a boat load of excited humans oohing and aahing at them. It was, quite simply, spectacular – and profound.” – Kristin Bauer, Trueblood Blog. 20 August 2010.
