Humpback whale photo-bombs Dublin couple’s holiday snap

When it comes to the stars of the wildlife world humpback whales are definite A-listers, and like all stars they occasionally steal the limelight. This priceless moment, captured on a whale-watching trip off Hervey Bay in Australia, shows the moment a humpback spectacularly photo-bombed a Dublin couple’s holiday snap.

Seeing a whale in the wild is up there on the bucket-list for lots of people… but you don’t have to travel to the far side of the world to see humpbacks. These incredible creatures are annual visitors to Ireland’s south coast, and a whale watching trip out of Waterford, West Cork or Kerry can yield equally impressive humpback encounters.

So, if a close encounter with whales is on your wildlife bucket list, check out some of the whale watching options around the Irish coast — and don’t forget that shore based and boat based whale watching features prominently on our Discover Wildlife Weekends on the West Cork Coast.
