Reply To: Finless Porpoise Spotting?


I believe some of best areas are in vicinity of Po Toi; so can try from here, maybe see from ferry – though I'm yet to see one from it (sometimes take it, and watch for seabirds). One lucky birder saw Hong Kong's first humpback whale from ferry: an individual that spent a while in Hong Kong during spring 2009, not long after reports of US spy type ship – using loud underwater sounds I believe – was reported to have been operating near Hainan.

I have seen from boat, also from Cheung Chau (again, watching for seabirds, so scanning sea with binoculars): as someone had told me, not much to be seen: bit like a tyre bobbing up in waves, then vanishing for a while before maybe resurfacing.
