Monday we had a wonderful time with three humpback whales busily feeding in the middle of the bay. Their dives were short and their flukes were many! The krill was swarming around our boat on the surface of the water so we even got to see some surface lunge feeding, with the whale’s entire mouth emerging vertically from the water, huge throat bulging with krill-laden water. Amazing.
We also came across a good look at a Northern Fur Seal. The one below in fact.
We sure are happy the springtime krill bloom has begun in a big way. I bet the humpbacks are even more pleased. Conditions have been splendid out here.
