Want to see whales breaching and working in unison to “bubble net feed” on krill and small fry? It’s an amazing sight that can best be viewed from Danger Point, just a short walk from Angoon.
Danger Point provides a strategic view of Chatham Strait, one of the world’s richest waterways. It serves up enough krill and herring to keep humpbacks busy every day in the summer. Watch their unique techniques for feeding on thousands of fish at once when they “bubble net feed.” A group of whales swims in a shrinking circle, blowing bubbles underneath a school of fish. As the fish are forced upward by the bubbles, the whales swim upward in unison with mouths wide open to feed.
Be sure to bring your camera, binoculars and a jacket – it can get windy out here.
