First Humpback whales passing by
The first humpback whales have been seen in the Plettenberg Bay area. They are on their migration up north towards the breeding ground in Madagascar. The whales that pass early through our bay are normally the males that want to get to the breeding ground first and wait for the females. After them comes the younger animals and last the pregnant females and mothers with last year’s calves. Whale season will soon be in full action with the southern right whales coming into our bay to breed and give birth.
