Video - Whale watching at Robe 6/9/2008

The giant mammals of the ocean have fascinated people for years and since the moratorium on hunting of whales has been in place these gentle giants are returning to the shores of Australia. Over the past 5 years whales have been passing accross the entrance of Guichen Bay and occaisionally making brief forays into the Bay. On Saturday the 6th of September 4 whales came into the bay and spent 8 hours slowly moving around the shore line before going out to the open ocean as the sun set.

I took the video camera out and caught some footage of them. Unfortunately the camera did not have the focussing range to get the whales very clearly. The end result is the whales are blurred, lol they could be the Lochness monster, a school of salmon, but they are whales.

Thankyou for your time and attention, Geoff
