Seen any whales during the southern migration?
To some, seeing a whale is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
But for Eco Abrolhos tour boat operator Jay Cox, it’s as run of the mill as traffic.
“We see so many whales, it’s not funny,” Mr Cox said. “About this time of year, you can see up to about 50 when heading out.”
Mr Cox, who has been in the industry since 2003, described the feeling on his vessel as “electric,” when people spotted whales.
He said folk were mesmerised by the behemoths and run around the boat taking pictures.
This time of year, the whales are migrating south.
According to the Geraldton Visitor Centre, whales can rarely be seen from the shore, making a boat the best place to view the mammals.
People are urged to navigate the ocean safely during the whale migration, including keeping at least 100m away from them.
