Incredible day of whale watching! Today was one of the best of my career. So many whales, so close to the boat as we just sat idle and let the whales come to us. Unbelievable! Over 20 humpbacks were in a small area, and some were seen in groups of 8-10 whales! We identified 4 mother whales, yet only saw 2 calves, so we aren’t sure if the other 2 calves have already weaned and are no longer with their moms or if they were hanging out on the outskirts while the adults were busy chowing on sand eels. Calves generally spend less than a year with mom, so it’s possible some of the youngsters are already independent!
