Only in OZ: Irwin's Whale Watching Boat
Steve's Whale One vessel was named by Irwin's kids, Bob and Bindi, as a tribute to their dad. The 130-seat boat will offer 360-degree views from large observation decks around the ship, educational talks by on-board biologists and an underwater hydrophone so passengers can hear whale songs.
At yesterday's dedication, Terri Irwin revealed that it was Steve's dream "...to be a full-on warrior for whales, to tackle the Japanese harpoons head on." These educational excursions realize his vision and serve as the latest "weapon" in whale conservation.
