Just what the Dr ordered ... a beautiful day on the water with a large pods of Bottlenose dolphins for most of the 2 hr survey ... unbelievable. We had just left and were near the Screwpile Jetty when the dolphins were first sighted ... we slowly continued around Granite Island and to Yilki Reef and Wright Island ... and were continuously surrounded by dolphins. It still astounds me the effect dolphins can have on people ... many times during the survey there was complete silence on the boat ... 22 people just in awe and taking it all in. The dolphins also seemed to be having a great time as well with a lot of displays observed ... loafing, tail slapping, jumping, some fishing, others mating, some being inquisitive and bow riding and visiting the other boats in the area ... it was one of the best dolphins experienced in a long time. We then visited ... and was entertained by the Long nosed Fur Seals at Seal Island. A big thank you to everyone involved in this special survey ... to SS Ian and Maddie for a great ride in perfect conditions ... This was Maddie's first official Kangaroo Island/Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch Survey so welcome to the family Maddie ... and of course a big thank to the BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS for your continuing support and making it all possible. Also I would like to congratulate THE BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS for being award winners at the Business Victor Harbor 2018 Beyond Bank Business Awards ... award winner for Best Tourism Experience and joint award winner of the Most outstanding Business Award ... congratulations to everyone involved in the BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS. ...
While we celebrate, once again, maintaining a stance against Japanese whaling in the IWC as a country, we are ready to consider allowing a Japanese corporation to set up a woodchip export facility in an emerging Biologically Important Area for Southern Right whales and an important habitat to other threatened and endangered species in stunning, pristine waters.....????
Will we hear the ring of Japanese laughter at our hypocrisy when the IUCN task force visits Australia in 2020 to establish Important Marine Mammal Areas?
