Below is a whale that is annoyed. They make this splash if the boats get too close. Possible this is a Fin whale.
Cola! Cola! Cola!
The pictures are listed as we saw them from top right column down. Left column same. Below is the Humpback.
Cola! Cola! ... Mexican for Tail! Tail! This is the tail and top fin, of the Humpback whale.
Below is a Blue Whale.
Tap on this picture above and below...see the man on the paddle board? Yikes! I wouldn't what to be him. This whale was huge and swimming directly to him.
Below is a Fin Whale.
We left during sun rise this morning and it was beautiful with the sun coming up over the bay. We saw Blue, Humpback and Fin whales that morning. The pictures were difficult to say for sure which was which, so my labels may be off slightly. The Blue whales are the largest of all mammals. The Blues have a small top fin and the Fin whales have the larger top fin. The Humpbacks just have bumps on their lower back spine. These types of whales typically are more illusive and not necessarily friendly. Our first views that morning were on the horizon with 4 spouts visible at one time.
Below is an upper view of the bay on a different day. Also a new name for Freddie is photo bomb Freddie!
Notice the wristbands? The government requires a permit to whale watch...it is closely watched...that is a good thing.

After my husbands widow maker heart attack in 2004, the doctor said just relax and enjoy life for a while. So it happened: the 43' NewMar Mountain Aire coach was purchased and the house sold....eventually. Relaxing? Not always! We are truly blessed to spend this time together... and with friends.
