It’s amazing what one can see from a boat off the shores of Petersburg Alaska in the summer. The humpback whales migrate through South East Alaskan waters during the summer months and create quite the show. These whales are known for their acrobatic breaching and slapping the water with their tails and pectorals. These whales can swim up to 16,000 miles each year. Killer whales, also known as Orcas or Black fish also swim through these waters. These whales are highly social and are regarded as apex predators which means they lack a natural predator. It must be nice to be on top of the food chain! It is a special sight to behold these animals (and others) in their natural habitat and is a shame that such thing is still captured and stuffed into pens for public viewing amusement. When possible, support causes that promote these impressive fish doing what they do naturally. Make the time and plan a trip up north to South East Alaska’s Petersburg and come see for yourself just how impressive these animals are in their natural environment.
