Quite a day when they have to decide “which whale should we go see 1st?” There were 3, possibly 4 to pick from! We saw more than one shark feeding on the way out to the whales too. #1 was checking out the boat, feeding below the surface when it decided to start lunge feeding. It’s quite cool to see, as the bait fish seem to “boil” on the surface before the whale comes up. It swam under the boat, coming up right next to us. There were some dolphins swimming with the whale as well. #2 was out about another mile or so, but once we got close, it gave us a good look at more lunge feeding behavior. The Osprey pics stink, but it shows how they carry their catch.
