Visiting an old friend

The other day we were observing a mom and calf pair as they slowly swam near our boat. The calf came over to take a look at us which the curious young calves often do. Not long after, the mom raised her tail flukes and I immediately recognized her as a whale from our catalog. After looking through all of our previously identified whales, we now know that this is the third year we’ve seen her with a young calf! The first time we saw her was in 2013. It's great to be able to identify the same whales year after year and to be able to track things like calving rates. We are so happy that this mom is doing well and look forward to seeing her in years to come!
