A Mother and Calf Humpback – 10/9/23

The day started early in the island of São Tomé.

We took a boat and found ourselves a wavy day at the sea but with our bodies full of excitement, only thinking about a possible encounter. We first sailed around the island of Rolas, known to be the closest land to the geographic center of the world. After a while, our captain spotted a foam chimney some kilometers!

We put direction to the area and spotted a mother and a calf of humpback whales! We enjoyed their gentleness for almost 2 hours and even witnessed some breaches!

Honestly, it was incredible experience, looking forward to get more opportunities in the future!

Hope you enjoy the feeling on my experience.
