WHALE-watchers were lucky to come alongside a pod of whales playing off Moreton Island.

They were even luckier to have spotted a rare Southern Right Whale nursing its calf.

Of the eight whales, three were adults, two were juveniles, and one was a calf. 

The team at Tangalooma whale watch were able to capture this footage today on one of their sojourns out onto the water.

Have you been whale watching recently? Let us know down in the comments.
