Guests joining us on Monday’s Wake up with the Whales Cruise saw 6 different Humpbacks. Most of the time we were watching spouting and sounding behaviors from a lone whale who was on 10 – 15 minute dives. Towards the end of the cruise, we saw some action in front of the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort, so we motored over to take a look. We found three whales interacting in a weird, kind of competitive way. They weren’t splashing at the surface, but they were swimming very close together (and swimming very close by us), doing some strange twisting dives. While we were watching them, we were totally surprised by a breach from one of them, while the other two continued charging right past us several times. After we dropped the guests off from this cruise, we picked up other guests for our Snorkel and Whale Watch Adventure Cruise. As it had only been about 30 minutes, we returned to the area to see if our three whales were still at it. We saw lots of spouts and flukes…but whatever conflict those 3 whales had been dealing with must have worked itself out, because they were no longer charging around at the surface together.
