The three vessels of the Sea Shepherd conservation group docked in Melbourne on Wednesday (March 20) after clashing with Japanese whalers during their anti-whaling campaign in the Antarctic.
The organisation said the expedition was the most successful Antarctic whale defence campaign to date and had severely reduced the number of whales that were killed by the Japanese.
The Bob Barker bears the scars of a collision with the Japanese whaling factory ship Nisshin Maru in the Southern Ocean in February with damage to its bow.
Jeff Hansen, Sea Shepherd Australia Director has estimated the damage to the ships at close to 1 million Australian dollars (1.3 million US dollars).
The three ships will stay in port to undergo repairs to their masts, hulls and satellite navigation systems.
