Albino Southern Right Whale in the Walker Bay (video)

The little village of De Kelders is one of the world's best whale watching spots. Located right at shores of the famous Walker Bay and only 5 km north of Gansbaai and a about 30 minutes’ drive from Hermanus, De Kelders is renowned as the home of the Southern Right Whales. The whales are coming to stay in the warm waters of the Bay with its rocky inlets and sheltered bays usually between June and December year after year to mate and calve.

Lloyd Koppel, a local from De Kelders, filmed a rare albino Southern Right Whale along with other whales in the Walker Bay in November 2011. All the footage in the video was shot from land, indicating just how close the whales come. Kudos @ Lloyd Koppel
