Whale watching season starts off Phetchaburi coast

The Bryde’s whale has returned to the waters off Phetchaburi and reporters and tourists boarded boats on Monday for the official opening of the official whale-watching season, with about 10 of the huge animals obliging them on the first day.

Boonyod Maklai, mayor of Tambon Haad Chao Samran in Muang Phetchaburi, led the outing on Kor Kai Bay and off Laem Phak Bia Cave.

Boonyod says the whales feed on plentiful plankton in Kor Kai Bay and also off the coasts of Samut Songkram, Samut Sakhon and Chachoengsao from October to December each year.

His tambon administrative organisation has trained tour-boat skippers to keep at the proper distance for observing the whales, and tours must ensure that all passengers are wearing life-vests.
