Port of call in Juneau, AK #Alaska #whalewatching #humpbackwhales #MendenhallGlacier

In Juneau, we got on a bus that took us to Mendenhall Glacier.

We walked the trails there for about an hour (one of the trails was flooded, so trails were limited).  We then took a whale watching tour.  This is a video I took of a group of approximately 10 humpback whales bubble net fishing.  From what our nature guide told us, there are only around 150 humpback whales that know how to do this and they're all in the Juneau (Alaska) area.  If you watch at the beginning you'll see them blowing, then their tails as they dive.  Watch the birds, they tell you when the whales are surfacing.
