Whale of a Trip

Late August is always special on the north coast as it brings the Humpback whales in large numbers to feed and prepare for their journey to Maui to have their calves. Welcome aboard to our guests Richard and Carol, Vital and Colleen. We were happy to show them some nice northern Coho and the whales stole the show with one of the most spectacular bubble feeding displays we have ever seen. Although we see hundreds of whales every year we never tire of watching their graceful tail flips and bubble feeding displays. This time it was a pod of ten whales working closely together and at one point lungeing out of the water within 30 feet of the Thunder as we trolled through the Gnarled Islands. We hope our guests take home some once in a lifetime memories of the whales of Chatham Sound. Hope to see you back again soon.
