Mom and Baby are in the Pod

Pilot Whales Dive for Food 
A Family Pod close to the Boat
Beautiful in Slow Motion 
Sooty Shearwater, Bluefin Tuna

Pilot Whales are a delight to see.  Families feed together in a pod.  They eat many North Atlantic fish, but their favorite food is squid.
   Cheticamp, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

     Pilot Whales Dive  is a slow motion view of a deep dive.  Look for the blow as the whale begins the dive and the steep angle as the tail enters the water.
     A Family Pod  swims very close to the boat.  They do not appear concerned about our presence.   They take many shallow dives.
     Slow Motion Views for a better look as the pod forages in the waters off the coast of Nova Scotia.
     Surprise views include a hoped for
Sooty Shearwater and a Bluefin Tuna. Bluefin Tuna is rapidly succumbing to the sushi market, with only 85% of its former population.  See WFF.
