What a way to start a holiday! The Robba family are onboard Dunia Baru at the moment and yesterday, the first day of their holiday, they spotted a small pod of sperm whales. Dunia Baru was headed towards Dampier Straight, which is relatively close to Papua New Guinea, when the family saw four or five sperm whales. The whales hung around for about 15 minutes, and displayed their foreheads, dorsals and pectoral fins.
