First Humpback Whales of Season Spotted

January 1, 2011

[Updated] The first whales this winter season were spotted yesterday [Dec 31]. Mr Andrew Stevenson said two whales were spotted off the appropriately named Whale Watch Hill, and then he “followed them along South Shore for four hours until they were past South West Breaker where they appeared to be heading very slowly towards Sally Tuckers. They certainly weren’t going anywhere very fast and most of the time they would have been in water 70-200 feet deep.”

Bermuda is a ‘resting place’ for whales in their migration route, with whale watching on South Shore being a popular pastime in the spring. For anyone who may spot whales, please phone 777-7688 [77-SPOUT] or email spout@logic.bm so that Mr Stevenson can record the sightings for research purposes.

Update Jan 1: Two whales were spotted again today
