August 16- 9:00 trip

This morning we started out with a group of five identified humpback whales and possibly two more. The group included Pele, Jabiru, her calf and Cajun and her calf. Pele and Jabiru

Jabiru and Cajun

There was another whale in the area who remains unknown. While the mothers were feeding, the calves stayed at the surface, occasionally rolling and diving. Suddenly the adults all appeared right on our bow! They might have startled us, but it was a pleasant surprise to see these whales so up close and personal! After some time with this group we headed over to a logging calf who didn’t seem too tired as he approached the boat half asleep.calf
