A Little Song, A Little Dance


The water conditions were “super smooth” for Wednesday’s 10:00 Whale Watch, allowing for some great sightings from Alala. Guests aboard the cruise got to watch 3 different Humpbacks. One of them breached 3 times just about 400 yards from us. We also got some good tail shots, as these whales dove right near us. And when we deployed our hydrophone, the sounds we heard were very clear…leading us to believe that those male Humpbacks have begun to make their arrivals already.
Captain Claire’s Humpback Fact of the Day: There are Humpback Whale populations in all the oceans of the world. The whales we see here each winter are part of the North Pacific population. “Our” whales feed in the waters of the Gulf of Alaska during the summer months. They swim the 3000 miles to Hawaii each year to calve in warm waters (and to mate).
