The Bryde’s whale has returned to the waters off Phetchaburi and reporters and tourists boarded boats on Monday for the official opening of whale-watching season, with about 10 of the huge animals obliging them.

Boonyod Maklai, mayor of Tambon Haad Chao Samran in Muang Phetchaburi, led the outing on Kor Kai Bay and off Laem Phak Bia Cave.

Boonyod said the whales fed on plentiful plankton in Kor Kai Bay and also off the coasts of Samut Songkram, Samut Sakhon and Chachoengsao from October to December each year.

His tambon administrative organisation has trained tour-boat skippers to keep at the proper distance for observing the whales, and they must ensure that all passengers are wearing life-vests.

Note: Keep your fingers crossed that they don't find their carcasses filled with plastic rubbish in a few months. :(

As always another well informed post which many people might possibly miss.
Well done,and yes lets hope that we are not reading about another plastic nightmare affecting the gulf and the surrounding oceans with these magnificent mammals.
