12 noon Whale Watch - Krill
We had a wonderful whale watch today with lots of surface feeding by humpback whales. I put together a video clip that I made from this trip and hope you enjoy it as much as I continue to.
I will post some text and photos in a day or so. I had so much fun making this video clip in Imovie that I wanted to post this for you now.
We had amazing feeding from about 6 humpback whales today. We were able to identify Cajun, Division, Lavalier and Tunguksa. Much of the feeding was at the surface which gave us tremendous view of these very rare and endangered animals up close and personal.
We also had great looks at Northern gannets that were dive bombing into the water to catch the same small school fish that the whales were feeding on. And today, I saw my first Manx Shearwater of the season. In fact, this is the first shearwater that I have seen this season!
We also had a few good looks at a gray seal that was feeding in the same area as the whales and seabirds. Total chaos as whales, seabirds and seals were feeding all around our vessel. But my kind of orchestrated chaos!
