Humpback Whale Breach 105
After departing Juneau and motoring down Stephens Passage to Frederick Sound, I spent my first night anchored at the Brothers Islands. Because of the long distance I’d motored the day before, my first priority was refueling. En route to the Kake fuel dock, I encountered my first breaching humpback whale! This whale was clearly happy that I was there to photograph it and could not contain its enthusiasm for my arrival. I normally use my more maneuverable inflatable to photograph breaching, but since I was on my C-Dory, I quickly passed the helm off to my dad as I grabbed my camera and headed towards the bow. The whale was heading in my direction and posed several times for me where I told it to. Thank you for your cooperation whale and see you in Hawaii next winter.
