Every year during the winter months, humpback whales pass by the north shore of St. Croix on their course of migration. 2014 has been particularly good for whale sightings, reported in recent weeks from Cane Bay, Judith’s Fancy and Green Cay Marina.
Approximately 100 meters off areas of the island’s north shore, depth drops dramatically into an underwater trench thousands of feet deep. It is because of this that the humpback whales, which prefer to stay in deep water, feel comfortable coming close enough to the shore to be visible.
