In this video, we try to demonstrate the love for orcas, humpback whales and all other animals we are lucky to encounter on a daily basis.

How do humpbacks lunge feed?

Lunge feeding is an effective way to take in a large quantity of whale food like small fish or krill all in one motion. The whales come up either from below a group of food or skim across the surface of the water. This gives any boats around a phenomenal view of the inside of their mouths including their baleen plates!

Full grown humpbacks can take in 20 000L of water with just one mouthful, so they can expand their throats like an accordion to make feeding even more successful.

Did you know?!

Humpback whales have huge pectoral flippers that can reach about a third of the length of their body. Their underside has 14-35 ventral pleats that span from their chin all the way down to their navel. These pleats will expand like an accordion while feeding, allowing them to take in massive amounts of food.

"By comparison to Resident killer whales, Transients traveled in smaller groups, vocalized less frequently, and were less predictable in their movements. The reasons for this behaviour were not clear at first".

Did you know?!

Flick feeding is a technique used by humpback whales in waters that have lots of yummy krill in the surface waters. The whale will be head down in the water sweeping it’s tail forward, moving the water on the surface ahead approximately 3 meters. After doing this flicking motion a few times, the whale will surface on it’s side and lunge through the disturbed water with it’s mouth open to take in the krill that has been trapped in the splash zone!
