It is trips like the ones we have been having lately that every whale watcher hopes for. I think most people would agree that is well worth the ride. When there are this many whales in one area it allows us the opportunity to be a little bit picky about which behaviors we stop by to observe. Today we started on a group of humpbacks that were doing some bubble net feeding. Then a little ways away we saw a whale doing some pec slaps and full body breaching! We ended the trip on a whale named Etch-A-Sketch who never allows for a boring whale watch. I’m pretty sure every time I have seen this whale it is furiously kicking away at the surface only to come up with a huge open mouth full of food. Etch definitely isn’t a shy whale either. More often than not, this feeding happens a couple dozen yards from the vessel. The best part about trips like this is that no matter where you are on the boat, there is something happening near by.
