4 May 2015: Blue Whale Sighting

Blue Whale spotted

The Pantar Strait in Alor Archipelago is major migratory route for many large south sea whales including sperm, humpback and blue whales. It is also a route for orcas, pilot whales and many types of dolphin. While dolphin spotting on the dive boat and also from the resort’s waterfront is a fairly common occurrence, this afternoon we were lucky enough to spot a blue whale that had entered the Kalabahi Bay and surfaced just in front of the resort!
