The humpbacks continue to a sure thing. Although, over the last week or so the sea conditions have been a bit lumpy. So we’ve been limited on where we can go.

But today was very nice. Little to no win and just a small swell running. So we were able to get out to where the large concentrations of krill and whales were. There were between 10 and 15 whales in the area.

We’ve been having to go about 10-12 miles out to the mouth of the canyon to get into the real action. Massive krill blooms and feeding humpbacks. We also had reports of more humpbacks to the south.
