The whales in Moreton Bay seemed to love our boat and we found it easy to imagine they had come out to watch us. Many pods were active everywhere we looked, jumping, breaching and curving out of the water. I found it moving and exhilarating to watch them.
I felt as if I had entered a happy, free realm, in the whales’ domain of freedom; to me they seemed playful and joyous. Seeing and being so close to these beautiful wild creatures in their own environment is a privilege and an inspiration.
