Everyone was very excited after this first look that when we left in search of some larger whales they were ecstatic when we did find a humpback whale! We found Doric, a 12 year old born in 2001, doing some feeding. This whale was staying down long, around 5 minutes but would surface near us and spend enough time on the water to really get a sense of how big this animal actually is. With the lighting and the close surfacings I was able to get some great shots including the attached photo of the scars on Doric’s right side. You can see the dimple like scar which may be from a sat tag as well as that long scar just above it. Doric also has a scar on its tail just where the fluke meets the tail stock which could be from an entanglement. It was a great day out on the water with some different whales.
