Humpback feeding frenzy

took these yesterday afternoon in Monterey Bay.
Humpbacks and Sea Lions getting into a proper tizz over massive amounts of sardines currently in the bay.

Spectacular indeed. A privilege to witness and I'm only slightly jealous, honest... Great pics and thanks for sharing.

ps: had to google Monterey Bay (to find out where it is!) and there's a ton of stuff on there about the whales and sea lions

The place is teeming with marine life. Also saw Risso's dolphins for the first time, just a little harder to catch on camera.

MustRIB;

Where in the bay were you? Saw a bunch of blues a couple of years ago, but had to run nearly to Aptos to get to them. I think I've only seen multiple humpies a couple of times, and never feeding (though I did get to see a group of 3 breaching once.)

Nice pics; thanks for posting.

Thanks. Was an article on the front page of the SF Chronicle today about kayakers going out from Moss to whale watch.
