Good evening everyone, we had an incredibly special afternoon on the water today, we had the chance to show our passengers a breaching minke whale! All whales have the ability to breach but some species. such as humpbacks and Orca tend to breach more often but when you get the chance to see a minke whale breach it's a very special sight. Researchers are not positive why whales breach but there are many ideas such as knocking external parasites off, strengthening muscles in the case of calves, attracting attention of potential mates or maybe even just for fun.
This is the whale who is breaching
Of course we made time to stop with seals....always :)
