August 5th - Humpback whale mania Part II!
Boats Cascadia and Keta set off the dock at 10:30am in search of those humpbacks that had been sighted the day before. To our surprise and joy, they were picked up in relatively the same area spread out as individuals or in groups of 2-3. In total, our boats encountered 5 different individuals.
"Geometry", "Split Fluke", "Anvil", "Zorro", and "Heather" were foraging around Halibut Bank and near Neck Point, Nanaimo. Our guests were treated to all sorts of amazing behviours! Pec slaps, head slams, lunges, tail slaps, and even breaching! If you have ever been lucky enough to see a humpback breach then you can relate to how stunned and excited our guests were!
Here are some of the best photographs that our naturalists captured from the day's events. We are still running daily tours at 10:30am and 3:30pm -- book now to witness the #humpbackcomeback in the Salish Sea!
Tired of whale pictures? Heres some special birds from that day! First shown is a Black Turnstone, and the second shows a series of images of a gull catching fish out on the water.
