Glacier Bay Humpback Whale Sighted in Hawai'i

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

National Park News

On March 15, 2011, researchers from the non-profit Hawai’i Marine Mammal Consortium, including Glacier Bay National Park’s whale biologist Chris Gabriele, encountered a very familiar humpback whale off the coast of the Big Island of Hawai’i.

Even though we know most humpbacks from SE Alaska make the 2,700 mile swim to spend their winters in Hawai’i, actually identifying one specific individual among the hundreds of whales congregating around the Pacific islands is still a rare event. This male has been seen in SE Alaska waters regularly since 1985.
