Hi Everyone Last week we spotted people spearfishing off the coast at the Byron Lighthouse, and we wondered if it was allowed, as it is a Marine Park.Jackie from the Byron Marine Park has clarified that if they are to the RIGHT of the lookout platform with the sign "the most easterly point in Australia", that is a restricted area, and they should not be there. However if they are to the LEFT of that point, eg on the Little Wategos side of the lookout they are allowed.So the people we saw spearfishing that day had strayed into the restricted area.She said if we ever see anyone in the restricted area to phone or text her on the number below.

Winter doesn’t get much better than this. Gorgeous turquoise oceans, whales, turtles and brahminy kites. And guess who decided she didn’t need her 100-400mm and only took a wide angle lens 🤦‍♀️

Whoo hoo – it’s Whale Watching time 🐳The Club **has not organised a whale watching outing**, but I have been doing some research which might help if any members are interested in doing a whale watching cruise this season. If you are planning to do one, and are wanting company, just pop a post on our FB page here and see if anyone else is interested in going with you.I think Kathy did the Brunswick trip a few years ago, Sue and Lyn did the Seaworld one, and Jill and I did the tour out of Coolangatta last year. Mark is going out with the Ballina Tour next week, so will be able to give us feedback.If anyone has done a local Whale Watching trip and would like to add their thoughts/recommendations (and photos of course!) please do so.We are lucky in that there are 5 local operators that have regular tours that are all within a relatively easy drive from us. The all seem to operate at least 2 tours a day, some more. It depends on the weather. Prices vary as do the length of the tour. The other key difference is the size of the boats used, and amenities – some have inside cabins if it rains, some have toilets. **NB: Please contact the tour operators directly to confirm details on boat size, passenger numbers, accessibility, prices, length of tour etc. as these can change.** So in no particular order, and with information as at 11 June 2021:**Out of the Blue (0407522422)**Several departures a day, am and pm.Cost: $119Duration: 2 hours approx.Passengers: n/a (see pic below)Departs: Lance Ferris Wharf, Ballina**Blue Bay Whale Watching (0488904411)**Two morning departures a day (8am and 11am)Cost: $119Duration: 3 hours approx.Passengers: 8 per cruise**Coolangatta Whale Watching (0403920922)**According to their website currently only one departure a day Cost $85 Adults (Seniors $75)Duration: 3 hours approxPassengers: 50 per cruise Departs: Ivory Marina Wharf, Tweed Heads**Yamba Whale Watching Cruises (0497942537)**Two departures a day 9am and 1pmCost: $80Duration: 3 hours approxPassengers: licensed to carry up to 14Departs: Yamba Marina**Sea World Cruises (07 55399299)**Up to 6 departures a day, operating from two boats.Cost: Adult $69 (currently discounted from $89)Duration: their website doesn’t sayPassengers: their website doesn’t say (see pics below)Departs: Sea World Main Beach Terminal, Gold Coast

REMINDER OF JUNE CLUB OUTING (EDITED 18/6/21)JUNE – **Saturday 19th 6.00am** – Sunrise Shelly Beach Rock Pool – (sunrise @ 6.38am so get there early to setup)Set the alarm clock and take advantage of the end of daylight saving to get that sunrise photo. High tide will be at 2.41am, and low tide at 9.17am, with Sunrise at 6.38am, so hopefully we will have a nice mix of exposed rocks and receding water for long exposure shots. Bring your tripod and filters.Details: There is plenty of parking at Shelly Beach around the Surf Club.Rating: EASY
