Blue! It's difficult to find words to describe today's trips. We were traveling along side this beautiful blue whale and at one point he/she resurfaced right I front of us, insane! Never expected a close encounter like this. This blue whale was racing and seemed like it was doing a bit of a feeding session. Kaikoura truly is a marine mecca and we were lucky today to have several blues around the canyon ♡

We came right in time to watch this humpback whale lunge feed the other day, over and over again. There seems to be plenty of food around here for him/her. It's amazing when you get to see inside the whales mouth. Humpback whales are one of the baleen species who have baleen plates hanging from their upper lip that they use to filter out any smaller species of prey such as small schooling fish or krill #humpbackwhale #humpback #whale #lungefeed #picoftheday #feeding #savethewhales #whales #whalewatching #whalewatchkaikoura #kaikoura #newzealand #nz #pure #ocean #planetearth #blueplanet #earth #planet #wildandfree #wild #explore #travel #animalphotography #cetacean #blue

Lunge feeding whales on the humpback hiway in the Johnstone Strait. Lunge feeding is a technique used by humpback whales to engulf large quantities of concentrated fish. This solo technique is completed by diving down and slowly blowing bubbles while circling a school of fish. As the panic sets in, the fish group tighter together allowing the whale to push them closer to the surface and gulping up a mouthful. Using their tongues to push against their balleen, a protein similar to your hair and fingernails, the humpbacks then filter the water out of their mouth.

Watching these beauties lunge feeding made me very emotional 😍🐋 probably 13 of them surrounded our boat while feeding on small herrings and schooling fish in the beautiful location of port Mcneill, Bc. #humpbackwhale #humpbackfluke # humpbacks #lungefeed #majestic #passion #wildbeauty #whales #bcislands #bcwilde #vancouverisland

Triple lunge feed 🐋🐋🐋 so happy I got to experience this National Geographic moment. Once in a lifetime sighting that simply makes me giddy ☺️ #humpbackwhale #aptoscalifornia #megapteranovaeangliae #lungefeed #triplelungefeed #happymoment

Coordinated team effort for humpbacks corralling fish and lunge-feeding! The Giants are feeding for 8-months, each whale will consume as much as 1-ton of food a day or 240-tons over the season in their feeding grounds between northern BC, Mexico and southern BC, Canada. #lungefeeding #lungefeedinghumpback #lungefeed #seemonterey #visitmonterey #gowhales #mbww #mbwwsightings #humpbackwhales #bigbluelive #montereybay
