Monterey Day 1 (May 4, 2017)
About 30 Humpback Whales congregated in 50 feet of water, lunge feeding on lots and lots of baitfish!
The bait was so thick, the ocean floor was barely visible on sonar. Multiple whales would come shooting out of the water all over the place. Just seeing one group of whales lunge feed is spectacular in and of itself, but seeing it happen all over the place for a long period of time was incredible! Harbor porpoises and lots of sea birds were in the mix too.
