Being a Blue Dolphin crew member is no mean feat.
In addition to keeping everyone fed and watered and expertly balancing trays of cakes and fresh fruit in rocky conditions, the crew know a thing or two about Hervey Bay’s resident humpback whales. In fact, they know almost everything about the whales, including how to spot them, how to keep them interested – and how to photograph them.
Keen to capture the friendly whales on camera, the crew race around the boat with their DSLRs just like the guests! Whether the whales are mid-breach or simply gliding past the boat, whether the Bay is drenched in sunshine or shrouded in fog, whether the ocean is calm or serving up some chop, they have a knack for snapping spectacular pictures of the whales in action.
We’ve whittled thousands of photos down to just fifteen of what we think are our best shots. If you have a favourite photo from your Blue Dolphin trip, let us know on Instagram! Mention @bluedolphintour or tag #bluedolphintour and we’ll like or even share your best snaps!
Book onto Blue Dolphin this whale season for guaranteed sightings and close encounters with our famously friendly humpback whales!
