Annual Humpback Whale Migration

Megaptera novaeangliae

WINDWARDSIDE, SABA --- Each year, the months between January and March bring us a number of repeat visitors from northern climates. While divers and hikers make their annual southern migration to escape the cold, others flock south for more practical reasons and this year has been no exception.

As we approach the new millenium, the start of the 1999 season has been one of the best in years for humpback whale sitings. These enormous creatures have been sounding around the airport, at the pinnacles, along both our windward and leeward coasts and right in front of the Fort Bay harbor. Some divers even report that their chests have reverberated as male humpbacks croon their seasonal mating calls.

Sea Saba promotes passive interaction with all marine life, so any sitings while on the vessel are handled in a gentle fashion with no chasing or aggressive actions by the vessel, divers or snorkelers. The photograph above was taken by one of our February guests, Terry J. Maurer, at Shark Shoals. While divers were occupied peering down at several reef sharks that frequent this pinnacle, this 35’ gentle giant cruised overhead seemingly attracted rather than disturbed by their bubbles. Using his Sea & Sea camera with 20 millimeter lens and a single 120 strobe, Terry was able to capture the group's rare underwater encounter. As Terry reported, "it felt great and it's one more thing I can cross of the list of things I want to see on a dive". We were glad to oblige, Terry, and next time we'll see if we can locate that elusive seahorse for you.
