Evening Humpback Whale encounter! June 4th, 2011
This evening we headed out and encountered a younger Humpback Whale than we had found yesterday and earlier in the day. The Humpback we encounter this evening was probably less than 4 years old, unlike the full grown female Humpback Whale we had encountered previously.
This young Humpback Whale was in a boisterous mood and even showed us its tail fluke as it turned sideways under the water! It was also lunge feeding whilst we were watching and was moving in large circles in the area.
Apart from the Humpback Whale we also saw Harbour Seals, Harbour Porpoise, Steller & California Sealions and Northern Elephant Seals. We were also treated to another stunning sunset:)
