Humpback Whales and J-pod!! Aug 20th, 2009.

Here are more images from todays wonderful encounters with 2 Humpback Whales and J-pod during our tours today.

During our morning tour we encountered 2 Humpback Whales off Victoria and J-pod near False Bay. Not long after we arrived we witnessed two breaches! We also saw a large number of Steller & California Sealions at Race Rocks.

In the afternoon we had to travel to Turn Point as J-pod had traveled North during the day. As we arrived on scene the Orcas were in close to the shore of Stuart Island and were being very active playing in the strong currents. We witnessed several breaches, spyhops, pectoral waves and some amazing cartwheels.

What a magnificent day on the water!
