The marine mammal eaters blow my mind again ….
We arrived in their world just as they were coalescing into their troupe of 17 whales, where they all (minus T87 who was off doing his own thing) came together at the surface, laying there huddled in a secret and mysterious meeting (What I wouldn’t give to hear them and see them underwater during a meeting such as this)
We drifted in the water as quietly as possible (it was especially hard for me to contain my excitement at observing this behaviour) to allow this to all play out, then they all disappeared under the surface for a time. We waited and waited and “won the whale lottery” in a big way when they surfaced and swam under the boat. Score!!
