They Are Quite The  Characters

Of course the more I meet and interact with a someone, the more I get to know him or her .  The more time you spend with someone the more you learn about their life history, activities, behaviours, and even their personal quirks. There is no difference for us in respect to the individual minke whales we have gotten to know over the last decade.

Of course, we know those individuals best who we have known longest,  meet most often during a season, which are most active when surface feeding, group forming or interacting with the vessel, or of which we have a notable single encounter.

The more we collect such experiences the better we start to understand their lives and personalities.


In this section we introduce you to a number of minke whales
we know best. Stay tuned for any additional portraits to come.
