Humpback whale mega-jumper!



Finally we had the chance to see a full performance of a Humpback whale off São Miguel island, Azores. What a show of breaching (leaping out of the water)! It was a lucky sighting after 3 years of not seeing any humpback whales in these waters. The humpack whale was just a few miles south of Ponta Delgada.
This is as good as whale watching gets!

We were just 30 minutes out with the boat and we saw the Humpback whale with a full jump completely out of the water a second one we saw close to our boat with a jump backwords. INCREDIBLE show.
Specially if lateron we heard a humpbach was vieuwed three years earlier. Lucky us.
