Our captain was a young lady named Jen. She was from Florida, and this was her first season in Juneau. She did a great job. On the way out of the harbor, we saw a the schooner Atlantic, and we got a glimpse of Mendenhall Glacier. We also saw some sea lions. There were several sunning themselves on a buoy. I got some great pictures of them.
We also saw a group of whales that were bubble net feeding. This only happens at certain times of the year. The whales work together. They dive down and swim in a circle blowing air bubbles. The fish get caught in the net of bubbles and the whales slowly drive them to the surface. Then suddenly all of the whales come out of the water at the same time with their mouths open to eat the fish. It is truly an amazing site. We were able to see them come out of the water several times.
Kate and I rested after we ate lunch. I also pulled my whale watching photos on to my computer and was amazed all over again.
Dinner was in Parrot Cay. Another fabulous meal.
