Whale watcher?

Yes we do see Southern Right whales off this coast, sometimes very close inshore, and sometimes from a chartered boat - but I don't think many people are persuaded to charter by this advertisement...
One of my most truly memorable moments was (about 30 years back), coming up to the dramatic Cape Point lighthouse, in a big boat, at dawn, with a Right Whale frolicking and smacking the water with its tail, just a few metres away.

That whale watcher boat seems to be past its prime... but makes for a great image! Cheers!
