09-22-2014 Humpback Action Continues to Amaze



We have had some truly epic days with hours of surface lunge feeding humpbacks this past week. Add the huge schools of long-beaked common dolphins to the mix and many of the trips have been over the top great. Just when you think the whales are going to settle down, then “POW” their activity levels go off the charts again. That describes this week’s trips. Some trips are action packed and others are good looks at many whales surfacing and fluking with a few breaches for excitement. It is an ebb and flow and that’s nature. This photo by intern Emma Levy shows a group of surface feeding humpbacks. My highlight was when nine whales emerged simultaneously.
