We had a wonderful whale watching interaction today with two very curious juvenile Humpback whales. These two young cetaceans approached the boat, diving under and around the vessel, and circling the boat for nearly two hours. The whales were just as curious about us as we were about them, and at one point one of the youngsters lay upside down under the vessel, with both pectoral fins outstretched, studying the underside of the boat.
We moved away twice but the whales followed the boat, seeking us out. One of the whales displayed a clear hemisherical lump on the ventral surface (a female) and the other appeared to be a male.
