We saw something today that we haven’t seen all season! Humpbacks Pinball and Nile have been in the area for the majority of the season, and recently we’ve added a new whale to our list- Scylla. Today, all three whales were swimming together. We don’t know exactly why whales form associations, but we do know that they last for fairly short periods of time. These three were together for both our morning and afternoon trips.

During the afternoon, Nile was swimming between the other two, and we watched as she slowly turned onto her side and started slapping her pectoral fin against the water. She repeated this a few times before continuing on swimming. It was so cool to see these three together today!
