In the Great South Channel

Open mouth feeding humpback, 8/145/16 in GSC

Monday, August 15, 2016:

Our 17th trip to the Great South Channel in the past 16 years was another amazing adventure. In fact, it was one of the best of all time. Our 1st morning, began with  fin whales, humpbacks, minke whales and dolphins. We had whales around us from sunrise to sunset

Tuesday, August 16, 2015:

Our second day began with clear skies and whales all around us. We maneuvered the vessel and allowed the sounds of over 50 feeding humpbacks be the wake up alarm for all passengers
