Sept 1

Nice calm September day! We came upon a very mellow mother humpback whale with her calf. At first the calf was logging/resting at the surface while mom (Jabiru) was below.  Then Jabiru surfaced and spent some time with her calf. They both dove, and then returned to the surface a few minutes later. Jabiru and calf IMG_2677

The calf appeared to start nursing! It is really quite amazing to witness such peaceful moments in a whale’s life!  We continued on to find a minke whale briefly, and then swung by the mother/calf pair for a couple quick last looks before heading back to Gloucester.
