Humpback Whale Competition Pod

Humpback Whale Competition Pod I recently went whale watching aboard Teralani 3, a 60′ catamaran.  We boarded the boat right off Kaanapali Beach.  The weather was great and the ocean calm – perfect for whale watching.  Capt. Budd was at the helm with Iani, Kevin and videographer Ananda on board.  It didn’t take very long to find pods of whales – they were all over!

Capt. Budd found a competition pod of 2 males and 1 female.  There was a lot of action and at one point there were at least 5 male humpbacks and the female.  It was great fun when one of the males swam right at and then underneath the boat!  He did that about 4 times.

On the way back to shore we paralled a whale that was swimming right along with us.  It was really an amazing day.  (Oh by the way, these are North Pacific Humpback Whales.)
