I hung in Byron almost all weekend. Yesterday afternoon we had a wild barbecue at Wategos. Gaz and I took the double kayak down and chased whales. They follow the coast line heading south, if you see them coming in the distance and you time it right you can usually get quite close to them if you know how to time it and what direction to go. We ended up quite far out to sea but managed to see 2 huge ones only about 15 metres from us. On our way back in we had a pod of dolphins swim literally an arms length from the kayak and also saw the biggest turtle I have ever seen. Lifes good if you make it.
