    Whale Watching - Sunday 2:00pm 10th July : UPDATE : NOW Sunday 17th JULY

    http://www.sawhalecentre.com/whale_watching.html

    Here is the plan...

    Meet at 2pm on a Sunday at Victor at the Whale Centre and madly chase
    up the coast to Goolwa and beaches in between

    We just need to agree a Sunday PM

    I've always found Whales at Basham's beach

    Thoughts and ideas?

    Maybe we plan 2 Sundays and decide on the day based on the weather.

    I will be interested, will depend on which date but I should be up for it.
    I do go down to Basham a lot during the winter and does seem to be one of the best places.

    Count me in.

    Hi Kim that sounds good, how much day light do you think we will have left at that time of the day ?
    Just a thought I have not done this before
    Regards Gary

    I will probably be in this. I loved watching sail-board riders and seals last time!

    We do not normally plan this far ahead. Will confirm closer (much closer) to the date (whichever one is chosen)

    I would certainly be interested, and we dont usually do much on a Sunday, so any of those days would probably be good for me. I will keep a watch of this thread for definate dates and times.

    The kids and i were only just talking about going to see the whales as we havent seen them before either. I'm free and available on any of the days mentioned so i think i will just watch and see what date is confirmed and then go from there. Work may be the only issue as my rosters arent done that far ahead but i dont usually work on a sunday so should be all good. Would just be me sneaking off for the day and happy enough to take others along if transport is an issue, i'll have room for 4 others
    Kind Regards, Deb

    I think we need to wait until closer to the date - due to weather.
