|Lunge Feeding Humpbacks|
Guests realized how amazing an encounter these feeding behaviors were when the entire crew flooded out to see them with cameras in hand. I never knew the lunge feeding could happen so cooperatively, with two whales coming up side by side at exactly the same moment, with mouth agape and ventral pleats expanding to let in close to 15,000 gallons of krill filled seawater. And while everyone's attention was tuned into these feeding whales close to the boat I saw one of the most amazing sights I've ever witnessed a little farther off...a quadruple breach. Four whales breached almost simultaneously and only a few of us saw it. It will be a special moment tucked away from an entire season of incredible sights.
