We were able to spend some time with this group of 6 Humpbacks bubblenet feeding along the coastline.  It was so impressive to watch these great animals rising out of the water in near unison.  The water was choppy enough that we couldn't see the  bubbles come to the surface, so never knew when or where they would come up.

What an awesome experience - and so close to the shore - amazing.

Fascinating how these ocean giants have perfected their synchronised bubble net feeding tactics, and it must be wonderful to actually be there to watch them in action! Lovely shot Cindy.
