The humpback whales’ feeding grounds are here in Bermuda, halfway between the North Atlantic and their breeding grounds in the Caribbean, where they spend the winter. They stop here to feed on their way back to Canada, around March – April each year. About 10,000 swim past each Spring. These beautiful creatures can be seen launching themselves out of the water having fun, or possibly cleaning themselves before they feast up on about 1.5 tonnes of shrimp-like crustaceans called Krill. They weight on average 40 tonnes each! So best viewed from a far, maybe along the cliffs along the South Shore or from a dive boat.
