This is a recording I took from our hydrophone yesterday while visiting a group of 5 humpback whales bubble net feeding, just west of Hive Island. The sounds they were making is known as their “Feeding Call” and is used to coordinate with each other, to recruit more whales to the hunt, and to manipulate their prey.
This totally blew my mind as I had no idea what to expect to hear.
Listen for the call echoing off the cliffs of the fjord (really apparent after the 3rd call). Also, if you don’t know what bubble net feeding is, I highly recommend looking into it or diving into the hashtag below. #humpbackwhale #kenaifjords #hydrophone #whales #bubblenetfeeding
Since I’ll be home resting and planning these next few weeks I thought I’d break out some oldies but goodies from my gallery! I’ll be back on the road after the 4th of July! Enjoy! #humpbackwhale #kenaifjords #Alaska
The time I went kayaking at midnight in Seward with my cousin and the whales. @wilm1511
Worried about a rainy day tour? Pull on your rain gear and join us because on rainy days the waterfalls come alive and the subdued light makes the glaciers take on a deeper blue tint.⠀
The quest for a wolverine sighting took me up to the Harding Icefield. The beast went undetected another day, but you bet your bottom dollar that this wolverine habitat shot will suffice. All this hype about Nome and then I recalled the Kenai Peninsula also has it going on. #seward #hardingicefield #kenai #kenaifjords #alaska #iceicebaby #glacier
Despite running an Instagram account with National Parks photos, I’ve only been to two national parks. Here is one of them (Kenai Fjords), in 1988, from the Nancy Simmerman photograph collection in the Consortium Library special collections at the University of Alaska - Anchorage. This park is best explored by boat ;)
If you were wondering who’s on the other end when you call Millers Landing...it just might be Miss Ivy! @ivyleegue
caught wearing our gear and sipping coffee by the bay. If that doesn’t make you want to call and book a trip.....then idk what will.
Gear available in @saltycaptainshop

listening to coldest winter while standing at the edge of the boat with the wind blowing in my face passing over the glacier blue water and watching dolphins, orcas and grey whales pass by. Easily the best day of my life #kenaifjords
In honor of the summer solstice, here's a tbt to kayaking in Alaska at 10pm. 👌
Well my float plane just showed up to drop me in Katmai. Cya all in a few days ✌🏻
Abundance of wildlife around the park from our awesome boat cruise. Awesome trip today seeing different kinds of whales, humpback, grey, sperm whale, orcas, porpoise, sea lions, sea otters, bald eagles and several other birds. #kenaifjords
I reached into a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos and slowly ate a chip without breaking eye contact with a grizzly bear today. Probably my greatest junk food related accomplishment since I fought that raccoon over a bag of Ruffles in front of my ex and her family.
I call this "dang dang" noodles cause it's that dang good. Here it's served with a side of very fresh Alaskan salmon. Heyo.
Last day of spring got me feeling excited to make more summer travel plans! ✈️🙃 What are your travel plans this summer?
This shot is from the harbor at Seward, AK - from my recent travels to Alaska. 🛳 #kenaifjordstours #kftmemories
With this early summer storm we've experienced flooding out at Exit Glacier! Exit Creek has dramatically increased in flow and the toe of the glacier is melting back rapidly. Large chunks of ice tumble down the creek and litter the outwash plain- an exciting few days out at the glacier!
