9 am and 2 pm Whale Watches - Krill
9 am Whale Watch
Finbacks do not lift their tail (fluke) out of the water as they dive deep. But they have a beautiful pigmentation pattern on their right side that allows researchers to photo-ID individuals. And finbacks are the only whale that has an asymmetry to their overall body coloration. The right side of the body is lighter than the left. How fun is that!
As we watched our whales, we observed Wilson storm petrels, sooty shearwaters and laughing gulls in the area. We also had a young gray seal pop up next to the boat.
