Humpback Whale

Megaptera novaeangliae


Large, stocky whale with an obvious hump on the back, which is usually what we saw coming out of the water. We did see one whale fully breach out of the water, but the boat captain wouldn't stop for us to get a photo!


Seen on a whale-watching tour in Auke Bay near Juneau, Alaska
