AUGUST 26 2017 – Flat sea, humpback whales and visit to Race Rocks Ecological Reserv. It was a great day out whale watching. It is easy being spoiled with all the humpback whales we are seeing at the moment. 4-5 humpback whales per tour is easy to find out there. Our 10 am covered vessel tour found a resting humpback whale, the whale was “logging” at the surface breathing now and then. Whales are sleeping by resting half of the brain at a time, leaving the other half active to control breathing and movement of the animal. Today we got a live lesson in that! The afternoon was equally good with humpbacks and one came right next to our boat and went for a dive! Our zodiacs traveled far in the afternoon and saw orcas far to the west. Fingers crossed that they reached waters around Victoria tomorrow, we will go out and find out!
