From Sydney Ports Newsletter:

Whales are a common sight this time of year as they migrate along the NSW coast, stopping along the way in various bays including Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay.

But what a surprise for our Sydney Ports Operations Centre (SPOC) staff on Thursday, July 19, when just after 9am, two humpbacks and their calves took a grand tour of Brotherson dock.

As you’d expect, the phone-cameras were madly clicking as the whales made their way past ships at DP World right down to the head of the dock just below the SPOC building. They were in no hurry to leave and entertained staff and dockside workers for well over 45 minutes before heading out into the bay.

Phone cameras don’t always produce the best results but a couple of the best of the best supplied by SPOC staffers Lucas Collins and Ashley Rangott, can be found below.Whales at Port Botany
