A whale seen in Hout Bay last week

Not only in the bay but in the harbour!

This is nothing new but when we saw lots of power boats around it we thought it was dead and they were towing it out. As whales as common place but from around September each year where we live, it was a surprise to see one this early in the year.

With the whale taken out of the harbour and then tied off to the HBYC beach marker bouy, we were then informed that the council would later come out and remove it, they have a disposal unit for this kind of work they said.

A day later and the whale was still there, same again the next day, so it was not dead?
Seems it was never alive either, it was a prop for a very large film shoot done in and around the Hout Bay Harbour!
