Today we saw a HUMPBACK WHALE known as Zillion kelping. Kelping is when a whale finds some kelp and plays with it by dragging it around. Maybe it is a massage type of feeling for them, I don’t know, but we see it often.
Another day where all the USA boats were viewing a HUMPBACK during my two tours and while a pod of ORCA were across the border and we could have seen them except the water border is closed now.
We did see this beautiful whale, STELLER SEA LION bulls, a BROWN PELICAN and other sea birds.
