HUMPBACK WHALE (Megaptera novaeangliae)
A Humpback Whale with a baby was just cruising by fairly close to shore when we stopped at Halona Blowhole only to get a glimpse of a shot. Nice bonus.
Humpback Whales were spotted off Kauai already several weeks ago. Today, during a sail with Wild Side Specialty Tours http://sailhawaii.com/index.html along the West Coast of Oahu, we spotted a couple of Humpback Whales. They surfaced unexpectedly about 100 ft behind our catamaran, near Makaha. It was a nice bonus to the fabulous swim with Spinner Dolphins that followed.
