Pod Swimming By
We were starting to pull away when this pod popped up. That is likely a young whale between the two females and you can see the larger male dorsal fin with a wave in it.

Dalls On Bow

Dive Sequence By Rocks
Here three whales were feeding quite close to a rock wall - the water is about 130 feet deep here. This Humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae) has most of one fluke missing.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Dive Sequence
I love all the water that runs off the flukes as the tail comes out of the water.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

John Harvey Photo > Aristazabal Island > Aristazabal Island - Day 5, 6 > Dive Sequence

Dive Sequence
At this location, the whales would come up to the surface and breath about 5 to 8 times and then dive again, generally for 6 to 8 minuets. You can tell there last breath at the surface because you would see the hump back, and then the tail as they go down.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)
