Surrounded by Whales
We didn't have to wait for long before we spotted a pod of Humpback whales. The whales would pop up for a breath every 600 to 900 feet and we would see the telltale blow as they exhaled.
As they got closer, we could see the small dorsal fin on their backs and their distinctive tail flukes. Specific whales can be identified by the markings on their flukes, which are like fingerprints for Humpbacks.
