Two for one lunge feeding Humpback Whales

Humpback Whales Lunging

To provide perspective the yellow in the right hand corner is a guest’s head. Over the past five years humpback whales have become more common in Grizzly Bear Lodge’s whale watching area so a normal day in 2014 we would view between ten and twenty different whales. The idea is to wait quietly near a herring ball and wait for the whale’s lunge with mouth open to engulf the herring. In this case we had two coming up through a large school of herring.
