Lady Musgrave - A departing gift 'Whales off the port bow'

We left Lady Musgrave an hour before high tide on the morning of 3 August. As soon as we had motored out of the lagoon a pod of three humpback whales swam leisurely past the boat within metres!

Just minutes later there were another two or three whales off our port side, leaping and frolicking in the water.

We watched them for about an hour or so before setting course for Percy Island approximately 180 nautical miles to the north. The kids enjoyed the whales and had fun in the sailbag for another few hours...
