Lunge Feeding Fin Whales

Hello there, well, with the afternoon off I decided to look at some of the fin whale video that I have taken over the past few days and I wanted to share this video with all of you.

On almost every one of our departures we have had the privilege of seeing fin whales lunge feed. This happens when whales feed at the surface, lunging through a large school of prey, mouth wide open, right at the surface. It is so powerful and awesome to see....I wish the video did it more justice. We have also been spending a lot of time with the mom and calf fin whale pair, the "little one" is growing quite a bit.

I hope you enjoy the video,
