We’ve had a great few days out on the water. On August 12th and the 13th we had both finback and humpback whales. The whales have been great lately but the species and number we see on every departure varies. Wildlife always changes, that’s one of the things I love about my job. Above you can see a pair of finback whales traveling together. This is a special sight because baleen whales are not always seen in pairs or larger groups. They do not form close associations the way that toothed whales do, and the associations they do form for feeding and traveling and usually short-lived. Below you can see a few pictures taken from our 5:30 trip on August 13th. Parachute, a humpback whale we have been seeing quite often spent about 15 minutes slapping the surface of the water with his tail. Such a priveledge to see and it certainly doesn’t happen on every trip.
Well, they are calling for some bad weather tomorrow but I will keep you posted on our sightings.
