Here are some Humpback whale photos taken during a Whale Watch trip yesterday. As some of you must know taking photos of whales from a rocking boat and when the subjects appear and disappear rapidly, is really challenging. The weather was beautiful and the last photo even shows the Observatory at the summit of Mount Haleakala in the background.

Very nice! I just returned from a twelve day whale watching trip in Baja and know well of the troubles you speak of! Our humpbacks did not breach but we saw blue whales, fin whales, and sperm whales. Your pics are great!

Amazing shots! I will be there in a week and cannot wait. Have several questions; what where you shoting with? (Full frame or crop, lens), what whale watch company? And what time of day? We will be staying up in Wailea and were looking at a sunrise tour from Pacific Whale Foundation leaving out of Ma’alaea harbor. Heard morning is better for smoother sailing ( less waves).

Wife is not too happy with that choice it will be the second morning in a row being up before sunrise, day before we have reservations for the sunrise on Haleakalā.

Great captures! You sure had that "right-place-right-time" thing down. Might want to straighten your horizons, though. Wouldn't want to get my floor wet looking at your pics.
