This afternoon we headed back up north and found Patches a bit further away from where he was this morning with Trowel. Trowel had split from Patches in between our two trips, not uncommon for humpback behavior. First looks at Patches included him waving his pectoral fins and slapping them on the surface. Patches also rolled on his side and back multiple times for us, displaying the ventral pleats on his belly and demonstrating playful humpback behavior!

Two for Tuesday today-great whales back to back and excellent fall whale watching weather!
