Every year, female humpback whales travel from the Alaska’s Bering and Chukchi Seas to the birthing & nutrient-rich waters of Banderas Bay in Mexico. (The longest migration of any mammal on Earth) Along the route, transient orcas (killer whales) are also present, as this eco-type of orca utilizes other marine mammals as a primary food source. Skilled at killing even large whales, they regularly coordinate their attacks aiming to separate the defenseless calves of the humpbacks. To minimize their risk from the predators, gray whales swim in relatively shallow waters. Is it here at this point when we can enjoy of their visit near the Marietas Islands National Park.
