First whale spotted in the Bazaruto Archipelago

First humpback whale sighting signals the start of whale migration season

June 26: Last week the team at BCSS encountered a humpback whale in the waters northeast of our home on Benguerra Island. The whale displayed spectacular behaviour, breaching multiple times while heading north. 

The sighting represents the start of humpback whale season in Mozambique, which typically begins in July and ends in October.

The whales use the Bazaruto Archipelago for breeding activities, and last year we saw record numbers of humpback whales and calves rolling, milling and breeching just off the island, in the calm protected waters of the national marine park.
