Whale of day for fish­er­men

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

“The whales swam up on the other side as if to say hello and were so close you could see the bar­na­cles on them and all the scars on their bod­ies,” Wal­ter said.

Af­ter hav­ing a look at Wal­ter and his friend on the boat, the whales turned around and left.

“They swam back and forth a cou­ple of times and then they swam away, he had his tale up and she had a fin up as if to wave good­bye,” Wal­ter said.

“We al­ways see dol­phins, fly­ing fish, snakes and tur­tles when we go out fish­ing, but never whales.

“We didn’t catch much fish that day.”

Say­ing hello: the whale sur­faces right next to lo­cal fish­er­men
