Whale songs

All the following recorded whale sounds on this website are copyrighted and may not be used without our permission!

Humpback whales are known for their singing: these 'classical' whale songs could only be heard in their breeding grounds. For the population of the North Pacific this could be the waters around Hawaii sein, but also the coastal regions fo Mexiko or Japan. But this is only one population out of six different ones world wide and as every single one has it's own 'dialect' the songs differ from each other.

In this archive we have whale sounds recorded off of Maui produced by Kent Noonan, our sound engineer.

Whales also produce sounds in Alaskan waters as you can hear here: the recorded songs are courtesy of Dick Callahan.

The feeding calls can't be compared to the 'classical' whale songs. It's more like commands when they go hunting their prey togethe. These sounds are courtesy of the Jupiter Foundation - enjoy!
