Humpbacks continue to WOW – August 16, 2017

Hello everyone, Danielle here again to bring you more updates and incredible pictures from Jolinne!

August 16, 2017
It should be mentioned that as much as we have been able to watch humpback whales for the past few days, it’s only because the weather (light winds) has allowed us to make our way further out to the Wolves Bank.

The morning departure we made our way to the Bank and started off with a few fin whales. We then moved on and spent the majority of the morning with Motley and her calf. There was also a single humpback, Chevron in the area. We then ended the trip with a few fin whales.

On the afternoon departure the fog lifted and we had fin whales and humpbacks all around us. There were 3 fin whales charging around the area. We seen Chevron and Tusk who was traveling with another humpback. We got to see the “Tusk Twist” and also some pectoral flipper slapping.

The evening departure began with spending time with Bungee and her calf. A third individual joined Bungee. We then saw some breaching. Cork was in the area along with at least 4 fin whales. Then there was some more breaching and flipper slapping, I believe it was Cork. Puppet was still seen further out and then the trip ended with Tusk doing his twist next to Partition.
