Humpbacks on the Wolves Bank

Hello everyone, well the past 2 days have been wonderful!  We have been offshore on the Wolves Bank with a number of humpbacks...a bunch I could recognize and a number who's tails are out for ID.  Humpbacks are identified by the black and white pigmentation on the underside of their flukes and they are given names based on those patterns.  The shape of their dorsal fins also differs from whale to whale.

Here are some pictures from yesterday, October 7th

Unknown.....for now

And some from today, October 8th

I will let you know and update this post as the whales are identified.

Thanks for checking in today....we hope tomorrow brings much more of the same sightings!
