There’s great excitement on the water with several sightings of humpback whales. First the schools of herring arrive, then the dolphins and finally the humpback whales, which have been observed bubble feeding. The whales work as a team with different roles, the aim is to net a shoal of fish by encircling them in a cylinder of bubbles. Some of the whales blow bubbles, others dive deeply to push the fish to the surface, whilst others vocalise to contain the fish in the trap. Once corralled the whales dive deeply and swim up through the bubble net mouths agape swallowing the fish. The video below was shot at mouth of baltimore harbour, look out for the synchronised swimming dolphins!
