Whales and waves

Today we had at least three fin whales out there on the big ocean. We ended up with two curious adults showing of their power and beauty. They came close to the boats out there and we could see them very well, even thou we had some waves, we could see their bodies through the water and follow the light shadow (reminding us of their close relation to blue whales). We also got to see parts of the flukes sticking up as they were playing around. Such majestic animals. On the way out to the whales we passed common dolphins, by the whales we saw both a loggerhead turtle and a great skua. And our swimming boat had a great time with bottlenose dolphins.

Whales are amazing animals. My wife and I would love to go on a whale watching trip sometime. These pictures gave me some information on what certain whales look like, and what I need to look out for. I especially love the picture of the blue whale beginning to surface. I am so excited to go on this trip. And this website only made that feeling increase. http://www.orcaenterprises.com/tours-and-rates
