First gray whale spotted south of the equator

Namibia sighting suggests much-hunted whales are regaining ancient migratory routes, or may be down to climate disruption.

Keep your eyes open on deck while traveling to or from Walvis Bay. You might catch a rare glimpse of the mighty Gray Whale. You won’t catch this view from the Air!

Of course you won’t have the opportunity on the RMS St Helena since that service was cancelled in 2010.

Astonishing news from Walvis Bay, Namibia, where scientists from the Namibian Dolphin project on Tuesday confirmed the sighting of a gray whale. Not only has this north Pacific species been extinct in the Atlantic since the 18th century, it has never been seen south of the equator.
