Now many whales were seen over the course of this tour. First seen where Orcas. This is a pod of 7, this pod was 20 whales until the Valdez Oil Spill and no babies have been born since. This pod is a transient group from Hawaii called AT-1. This was a rare sighting and a research boat was following the whales.
On the way back from seeing glaciers the Humpback Whales were putting on a show. Breaching, tail waving and fully body slams were seen.
This is one of those times that a camera cannot capture the full meaning of this type of activity.
