Mother and calf humpback whales stun surfers

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A humpback whale calf, closely followed by its mother, came within metres of surfers and swimmers at Manly beach, in Sydney’s north, on Sunday afternoon.

It is unusual to see a whale calf so early in the year in Sydney. Eastern Australian humpbacks migrate north from Antarctica, along the coast to tropical waters in north Queensland from April to July.

The whales give birth in the warmer waters and often mothers and calves are spotted heading south during the latter part of the Australian spring.

One boardrider, Josh, told Guardian Australia he had never seen a whale, particularly a calf, come so close to the beach at Manly.
