ID: 81/09A
Gender: Female
First sighting: 1981

Granny is our most senior whale – believed to be over 50 years of age. She has given birth to ten calves since 1981 which indicates that she’s healthy and strong.

She’s the mother of one of our other adoptive whales – V – who has since become a mother herself.  On two occasions Granny was seen with a new calf in the same area as V and her calf. This means that she was swimming with two of her daughters and her grandchild at the same time.

Granny’s favourite cruising spots along the South African coast are De Hoop, St Sebastian Bay and Walker Bay.
