Amazing Feeding Frenzy – 28/4/23

We were treated to an amazing feeding frenzy! Hungry Humpback Whales have officially returned to Stellwagen Bank! This pair was part of a group of four whales feeding together. Nile, Scylla, Pitcher, and Hippocampus! Surface feeding is one of my absolute favorite behaviors to see offshore. Second only to close-to-boat behavior. It’s so great having these gentle giants back in our waters again!

This bubble net was perfect and close to the boat so I couldn’t get it all in. The four whales made quite the group as we watched them blow bubble net after bubble net. It was such an amazing encounter!
