Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

A Lone Humpback Whale Puts On A Show

On our first day out, on the way to Poet's Cove, a Humpback Whale treated us to an hour long show.  Humpback Whales are rarely seen in the San Juan channel, so this was quite a treat.  As you can see from the pictures, there were a number of boats that stopped to watch.  While it looks like the boats were near the whale, they were keeping their distance.  The fact that they look deceptively close is a function of just how huge the whale was!  The pictures were taken with my new SLR camera on the automatic action setting.  I took 700 pictures because when you press the shutter button the camera takes a series of fast action shots.  These were the best ones.  Absolutely amazing first day at sea.
