Aerial Acrobatics

I was extremely lucky on my Marine Mammals this year, getting the opportunity to see several Humpback Whales breach, with one breaching several times. When I got on the Great Bear Rainforest trip, I wasn’t expecting to get to see more breaches (because I already got lucky with that once this year). Well I was pleasantly surprised when we got a Humpback Whale breaching several times, on the very first day of the trip. It really was an excellent start to the 2016 trip, and our luck and great photographic opportunities continued for the remainder of the trip.

 

It doesn’t matter how many times I get the chance to see a Humpback Whale breach, it will always come with me saying “Whoaaa”, because there is nothing ordinary about seeing a sea living mammal weighing up to 30,000kg springing from the water into the air.
