Humpbacks on the March

Just a quick post to let you know that a large number of humpback whales migrating up the Kaikoura coast on their way north to the tropics where they will spend the winter mating and giving birth.

Over the last week or so our Dolphin Encounter tours have seen several humpbacks, often in the middle of a pod of dusky dolphins (quite a sight). This is the most humpbacks we have seen in autumn for a long time, which bodes well for the whales.
