Humpback Whale Lunge Feeding

We were able to photograph one Humpback Whale while it performed a series of lunge feeding movements to the surface along a tide rip.

Here is a photograph of a Humpback Whale lunge feeding.

After several hours of photographing Humpback Whales in Icy Strait, we headed back to the Bartlett Cove dock around 2:30pm. We caught a ride back to the Gustavus Airport with Mike’s wife for our 5:30pm flight through Juneau and on to Anchorage, AK.

It was a great trip and the ability for just Peggie and myself to charter the Kahsteen gave us added comfort on board as well as more freedom of choices of spending time photographing the wildlife and scenics that we wanted to spend time with during our five days.

I would recommend this trip for a minimum of four to five days to really appreciate the size, grandeur, beauty and remoteness of Glacier Bay National Park. In Alaska you can always count on 25-50% of your photography days being challenged by weather and the elements. The Kahsteen gave us the mobility, size and comfort to enjoy our five days and four nights!
