Humpback Whale diving

July 23 Humpback whaleHumpback whale dive


A good sequence of photos showing a humpback whale about to dive. While on our whale watching safari one of the photos guest want, beside killer whales, is a humpback diving and showing its tail. The tell in preparation for a dive is when the whale’s head comes a little higher out of the water than normal and then one gets the “hump” in the back as it noses down into deeper water, which throws the tail up. The next steps in the guides job is to maneuver the boat to be behind the whale when it dives and a photo of the underside of the tail.
