WINTER TIME IS WHALE SEASON.
Don't miss this awesome show of majestic Humpback Whales this year. We have a hydraphone to listen to the love songs they sing. ~ Sightings are guaranteed during Winter months
Breaching is a thrilling behavior to observe. With just a few strokes of their fluke, Humpbacks can gain enough speed to leap their 30 ton, 45' bodies into the air, crashing down with a thunderous splash.
How did we get these photos you might well ask?
Humpbacks are endangered, and protected from human intrusion in their waters - and, when they come so close to our boats, we have to stop and wait for them to move away.
Often, they act like they would rather play with us, so we wait joyfully on the boat, and sometimes we slip a camera down the side of the boat and snap... Once in a while, we get lucky! After all, it IS pretty hard to miss a whale! You can see that this one was right under the surface.
Spyhop, behavior happens when they want to see what going on above the water. Babies seem to be especially curious...
Tail slapping is a powerful action used in aggressive encounters. As they lift their fluke high out of the water, they slap the surface of the water with a loud crack that we can here for a mile.
Courting; Powerful displays of courtship can be seen on our charters. Often they lunge aggressively at each other, attempting to win the affections of the female.
We can't move the boat when they come close, so the best thing to do is enjoy their curosity.
And talk about LUCKY!?
Check out THIS little surprise!
WHALESHARKS are often seen in winter. Not to worry, like Mantas, they feed on plankton...can you imagine?
