旅行簡介

您的觀鯨之旅海員最多由四名乘員組成:

  • 船長
  • 健康安全官
  • 瞭望員和
  • 講解員

我們的旅行的主要目的是確定和觀看抹香鯨。由於抹香鯨可能在旅行時間內潛在海底,我們平均每次航行可以看到1到2次鯨魚。在凱庫拉,抹香鯨潛遊時 間間隔為40到60分鐘。在我們海岸線上看到的大部分抹香鯨都是雄性。抹香鯨構成松散的群落,通常彼此之間距離保持在數英裏,這樣一次旅行可以看到1到2 頭抹香鯨已經是非常幸運。幾乎世界上80%的鯨魚和海豚種類遷徙經過我們的海岸線,因此全年都有機會看到其他種類的海洋動物,例如藍鯨、長須鯨、塞鯨、座 頭鯨、小須鯨、巨頭鯨、逆戟鯨/虎鯨、南露脊鯨、真海豚、寬吻海豚、南露脊海豚、象海豹和豹海豹。

根據在觀看到抹香鯨之後剩余的時間,船長可以決定沿著海岸線航行,尋找可以觀賞到的其它種類的海洋生物。這可能包括暗色斑紋海豚、賀氏矮海豚以及新澳毛皮海獅。凱庫拉還是世界上75%的遠洋鳥類的棲息地,其中包括漂泊信天翁、皇家信天翁和澳洲鸌等珍稀鳥類。
