You can imagine how this whale was given her name; yes, she is often seen alone! Loner is also one of the few whales we have seen that bubble net feeds on her own as well as occasionally teaming up with larger feeding groups. In 2008, we were delighted when she arrived with her first calf. It was wonderful to watch, as this little one never left her side. Since then we have noticed that she has become more social with the younger community of juvenile humpback whales. In the early winter of 2011, she was seen with other humpback whales lunge feeding in nearby Verney Pass. This late departure indicated she may be pregnant, and was thus foraging for as long as possible before facing the long migration back to the calving grounds in the tropics. Yes, she arrived in 2012 with a new calf, then again in 2015!
