Aloha Friday: Kuhio Bay

The humpback whales are back in Hilo Bay, including its south central shore, Kuhio Bay. You can see them breaching. By spring, with the example of their parents, the calves will become seasoned aquatic acrobats.

Why do the whales jump? For joy, perhaps. Perhaps to dislodge parasites. Who knows? But it's fun to watch.

Sometimes a diver in the bay can hear them, if you listen closely. The singing must carry a really long way underwater.
