Superpods

We are having a fantastic morning with 4 humpback whales, 2 minke whales, 3 sperm whales, and a superpod white sided dolphins.

What is a superpod?  Well it is a large group of toothed whales usually several smaller family groups joined together.  We see these groups primarily in the late summer and fall when they are breeding ensuring more genetic diversity.  However, it is not uncommon to see them forming groups like this for feeding.  There must be lots to eat if there are that many of them together.  It is amazing to see such an enormous group of dolphins and to have them hang with the boat!
