The first day I saw humpbacks this year was Saturday, November 25.
It was a pod of 2. Most likely a mother and yearling, but maybe 2
adults, it was too far away to be certain.  This sighting was on Oahu,
from the top of Diamond Head.  I'm sure people have earlier sighting from
Maui.  Anyone seen any before this near Oahu?
