Hello everyone, what a beautiful Saturday in September! Today was calm, clear skies and amazing visibility and filled with some fantastic whale watching. On both our morning and afternoon departures we spent time with some finback whales and a humpback.
I took this shot of a large finback whale on our morning trip not too far from Whitehorse Island.
The humpback whale we saw on both our morning and afternoon trip was Lyrids, a young whale who we saw last year for the first time and was just named this past June. Below you can see the unique shape to Lyrids’s dorsal fin and the markings on the fluke that gives Lyrids his name (based on the white streaks that look like the Lyrids meteor shower).
