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.
