Baby Breach

Following on from the two images last month in Humpback Hugs, here’s another shot from that great day out along the BC coast. With her pec fin high out of the water, it is almost […]


Humpback Hugs

I was treated to my first day out on the water last week and had a pretty good encounter with a mother humpback whale and her calf. Both whales were quite active with mom breaching […]


Maui Visitors

Visiting Maui in the near future? If so, you’re in for a treat – these big guys, the humpback whales have just started returning for their ‘fun in the sun’. Researchers at the Pacific Whale […]


Humpback Fluke – Head On

Today’s Friday Flashback is from March 9th 2012 – A shot of mother and calf humpback whales diving together, taken in Maui earlier that year. The size comparison still amazes me. (As always click image […]


Breaching Humpback

A breaching whale is a spectacular sight to see and a humpback whale breach seems to be one of the most spectacular and entertaining. This whale was photographed in Favourite Channel, SE Alaska and at the time […]


Underwater Humpback

Just back from a short trip in the Caribbean. Whilst there I got the opportunity amongst other things to do some snorkelling about 100 miles or so offshore. The area we were in was a […]
