This photo was taken while whale watching off of Long Island in the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia. A curious humpback stopped to take a closer look at our passengers, these whales can measure up to 48 feet and weigh 40 tonnes! This often occurs when we shut down our engine and just sit and let the whale come to us! Known for being very curious humpbacks are one of our favorite whales to watch, often they will close approach our boat. Sometimes we see this behavior which we call spyhopping. Sometimes they roll around beside our boat and flipper slap. These are very friendly and curious creatures and are truly magnificent to watch.
