Breaching humpback whales may occur two or three times a week but pictures are much rarer maybe once or twice a summer. In the area of Bold Head in Blackfish Sound near Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island there are quite a few humpback whales. It is common to see six to ten whales each safari as the area has an abundance of herring, which is one of the whale’s main foods. The humpback whales arrive in late May to early June and remain in the area through October.
Today’s posted photo was takes just a few minutes after yesterdays posted photo. As a guide it is ideal to find a herring ball because herring are a humpback whales primary food. And if you station your boat near the herring a whale will come to feed. That is like “A Field of Dreams – build it and they will come”.Visit our Blog
