FIRST HUMPBACK OF THE YEAR! 🐋We spotted our first humpback whale of 2019 from Anacortes yesterday! Great to see this adult female, "Apollo", returning from the breeding grounds in Hawaii where she has been photographed in the winter months. More and more humpback whales will return to the area in the next few months, traditionally staying through the fall. Welcome back! blog.island-adventures.com/2019/04/april-20-2019.html ...
