As forecasted, it was cloudy in the morning, with some northeast with and the sky covered with clouds.

 

After thinking for a while, we decided to cruise down south today, and it was a right call.

Why?

Because we saw big stuff!

 

This big lined surgeonfish?

No.

 

This huge nudibranch?

This one was over 10cm long, so it was big…

But no.

 

Then these?

This was a big school of Indian mackerel, but no.

 

The answer is this!

 

Yes!

A family of humpback whales!!!

 

They showed us a big jump right in front of us!

But it was such a surprise, and couldn’t get a good shot…

We managed to get some video clip, so please check our FB page!

 

And that wasn’t the end of the story – we saw two mantas at Panari Manta Point today!

They circled around the cleaning station for a long time 🙂

 

For our guests today, it was their first manta encounter, and humpback whale encounter!

What a day!!!
