Description:
On 27 June 2016, my wife and I were charter fishing for halibut in Cook Inlet with Bob's Trophy Charters out of Homer, Alaska! We came across these humpback whales while we were moving from one fishing hole to another fishing hole! They seemed to be milling around this one area and us to be at a safe distance while they were hanging around the surface and appeared to be bubble feeding under the surface! Beautiful sunny and calm weather, halibut fishing, humpback whale watching/photography in the middle of Cook Inlet, Alaska! Awesome! Younger whale tail after surface, thought this was nice detail on edge of tail, fingerprint of whales!
