Cartwheeling Humpbacks

It was another beautiful day on the water. We set out to the west searching for the Humpback whales that have been feeding in the area over the past few days.

As we explored we came across a number of Humpback Whales. Some where diving and feeding underwater, showing their backs briefly to an amazed group of passengers. Other whales were more acrobatic, one even did and energetic cartwheel!

We carried on wards in our search and found some seals and sea lions on race rocks soaking up the sunshine. Our passengers watched in calm awe as we bobbed along side the tranquil creatures.

It was a day of Humpback happiness- our passengers witnessed many Humpback Whales feeding altogether. Seeing such big beautiful Whales acting so gracefully and naturally was a real treat. We sailed home with huge smiles on our faces- crew and passengers alike and compared photos.
