A Sperm Whale surfacing off New Zealand
Edition 41, February 2017


Many years ago, I took the photo (above) on a trip off Kaikoura in New Zealand. A few years on and I was working on a research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico when a researcher identified this very individual from its tail shape. It was a male that had lived in the deep ocean canyon there for many many years.

In much the same way, David Donnelly and his colleagues, have catalogued the Killer Whales of Eastern Australia. This amazing work includes pictures of all the individual whales photographed to date and it's available for you to download for free!

Also in this edition, we're excited to introduce you to a new small ship cruise portfolio, which is the most comprehensive in the world.

Complete this quick survey and we will email you discount vouchers to redeem with our partners: Hoyts Cinemas, World Nomads Travel Insurance and Jetsettr Travel Accessories.

In the mean time, enjoy reading about the mysterious Sperm Whales. On Sunday, we're off to Indonesia where we will specifically listen for and track them with our guests - but more on that in a later edition!

Best wishes and safe travels,

Simon Mustoe

Sperm Whale videos

These two videos from YouTube are brilliant accounts of Sperm Whale behaviour. The first is from a remote operated vehicle (ROV) 600m deep in the Gulf of Mexico. The second is from the Azores where scientists attempted to attach a camera to diving Sperm Whales. It's only been in recent years that technology has given us the slightest glimpse into the private lives of these amazingly sophisticated and supremely evolved animals.
