REPORT FROM 2ND OF JULY: SPECTACULAR!

Yesterday night was one of those evening when everything comes together. Humpback whales took literally our breath away from the beginning of the tour until the end. As a start, we were lucky enough to observe 4 fully grown humpbacks lunge-feeding right next to our boat; coming up at the surface with their mouths wide open! The number of whales in the bay was countless as we could see blows all around us in the distance.
