Humpback Whales hanging out at Battle Harbour, Labrador

We had a wonderful time visiting Battle Harbour, Labrador July 17-18 2009.  When we arrived we had heard from some of the other visitors that the whales were feeding on capelin and herring very close to the shoreline.  We were lucky that we got to see some of the whales in action!

On Saturday in mid afternoon by the cove, we stood on the solid rocks by the sea.  We watched as the humpbacks circled the cove and took deep breaths, dove down and then came back up again with their mouths wide open feasting on the little fish.  This video shows you some of the humpbacks that came within 5 feet of us by the cove.
