Our friendly humpback Nile was doing short 1–4 minute dives this morning. Then passengers and crew were all very surprised when Nile leaped out of the water with a full body breach!! A passenger on board was very nice to share these stunning photos. Everyone on board loved seeing Nile’s acrobatic surface activity. We also spotted a minke whale in the area.
We caught up with Nile again in the afternoon. She was changing direction a lot and doing short dives of about 2–4 minutes. Passengers were even treated to a couple large whiffs of ‘snarge’ or whale breath. The exhalation smells very fishy.
