Humpback Whales
Megaptera novaeangliae


Gerlache Strait, Antarctica




One of the best whale encounters ever! Two very curious humpback whales and a minke whale came to visit our ship as we were traveling north through the Gerlach strait here in Antarctica. They spent almost an hour exploring the ship rubbing against it and spy hopping!
