We take an early start to be able to go to Kake and on to the top of Rocky Pass to be well set-up to wait for the right time to proceed safely tomorrow.
The first two hours are no fun as we are going in a horrible pea soup with the radar, but the boys are set to go and refuse to wait for better visibility.
They rush to Kake, but then just fuel up and go, cancelling the planned time ashore. That makes for a pretty miserable day in my book which was saved only by spotting whales near Entrance island south of Kake .
The humpbacks were echelon feeding, a technique whereby they advance in a row, slightly staggered and push the fish around in front of their balleened mouths. Much like a team of combine harvesters. This is quite a show and very rare to get a chance to observe them less than a mile away.
Please bring me home some baleen!!
