It really doesn’t get much better than this. At least that’s what we keep thinking. And then we have 10-15 humpback whales swarm the boat! It’s really hard to imagine. Our boat is 43′ long. About 30 tons in weight. Most of the whales around us today each weighed over 30-tons.
Today, once we got onto the scene of where we were seeing spouts, we slowed the boat and put her into neutral.
The next thing we knew, we were in them. Literally. We had 10-15 whales interested in us.
They were popping up all around the boat. And these animals were not shy. They regularly popped up next to the boat with the starling blast of it’s spout.
And then there were the sea lions. We have been seeing the whales and sea lions feeding in the same area a lot this year.
