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.
Though UnCruisers often make lasting connections onboard, guests in the Sea of Cortes have been making friends with some slippery marine mammals.
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 soon as we approached with our skiff, the sound of the engine let the resident howler monkeys know about our presence and they started howling.
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.
