Humpbacks Singing…and Lots of Calves

Highlights from Monday’s Whale Watches included what our naturalist Meggan called, a “really exciting trip – best of the season so far”! On the Breakfast with the Whales Cruise, guests saw 6 Humpbacks, including a Mom and her little calf…we also saw a few breaches – not real close, but close enough that it made for a huge splash! When we dropped the hydrophone in the water we heard some incredible singing too (if you have access to Facebook and want to hear a clip, we put a link to a snippet Hawaii Ocean Sports fan page). And Alala had a private Whale Watch from 8:00 – 10:00. Guests aboard that boat saw 7 whales including a pretty quiet Mom and calf. They also saw a long-distance breach, and they heard some great singing too.

Captain Claire’s Humpback Whale Fact of the Day: A baby whale, called a “calf” looks so small and cute when seen playing with her Mom. But everything is relative…when the calf is born, she can already be 10 to as much as 15 feet long, and she weighs 2000 to 3000 pounds!
