Feeding humpbacks continue to be a sure thing with plenty of breaching humpbacks to go around. We had a full-size humpback launch completely out of the water two times in a row. Just remarkable. It’s usually the sub-adults that do all the breaching. But today we had a massive, full size adult put on quite a show for us.

Thanks to passengers Darlene Fong and Terri Fox for capturing the humpback breaching moment. They both were given a free trip aboard Sanctuary for their efforts.

We also heard multiple reports of other breaching humpbacks from other boats in other parts of The Bay.

And the conditions were absolutely beautiful. Calm and glassy with minimal swell. That makes all the difference.

We have light passenger loads all week. Our next trip is this coming Tuesday. So if you want to join us for a day on The Bay with just a handful of other people on board, book a trip and we’ll give you the personal attention that we’re so well known for. Small groups and longer trips. That’s we’re about.
