The seagull that was shown in yesterday’s blog posting, as being caught by a lunging humpback whale was releases a few seconds later when the humpback resurfaced. Actually Angus (owner and guide) took the photo and he said he saw two seagulls being released by the same whale so it was a good day for the seagulls.
There are stellar sea lion in the lodge’s whale watching viewing area all year but they are more abundant in the spring and fall as they pass through on their migration between Alaska and California. We make a point of stopping to watch the sea lions on their “haul out rocks” and at times they make a point of coming to visit our boat. Sea lions like many marine mammals are curious and will approach your boat if you are sitting quietly. However this is a little closer than normal but then it was a calm day on the water and we were near a school of herring.
