We just had the best week. While we were viewing smelly sea lions moan and groan at a haul-out, all of a sudden, a pair of humpback whales appeared.
We all arrive in Alaska with high expectations. As guides, we want our guests to experience something amazing. And some weeks, everything lines up.
As the summer is nearing the end, one of the grandest spectacles is becoming more and more common - collaborative feeding between our Humpback Whales.
It started with two whales coming close to the ship. This is nothing very out of the ordinary – it happens often. What happened next was the surprise.
We made our way to our snorkel spot. Minutes into our ride, we heard an exciting radio call from our expedition leader in the skiff in front of us.
