2002 was again a fantastic year, with more sightings than 2001,
and more different species than ever before. With our local knowledge,
and the pattern the whales give us, our sightings success is better
than ever. On our 3 hour trips in 2002 and 2003, in 4 months, we
failed to view whales only a handful of times. A record that is
"2003/04 were great years, we had a sightings record that
would be hard to beat, along with the group of Bottlenose Dolphins
that stayed around, some days we did not know where to look first!
- along with the Humpback that stopped off to feed. My thoughts
on 2005 were better than ever, we are seeing more and more different
species of wildlife of all shapes and sizes.With the addition of
a new,bigger boat, we can do more 3 and 1 hour trips and show more
people what the West Coast waters have to offer" (Look in news
section for full info)
2005/2006 - '05 was a 'different' year with a noticable decrease
in Minke whale numbers, along with low bird numbers and adult birds
struggling to bring up their young, put down to a shift in feeding
grounds. 2006 back to good sightings, and a quick visit from a Humpback
2007 - Finished whalespotting for the year now. Take a look at
the news page for further info..
