Another pleasant day and we boarded the boat for the long journey in the open sea to watch the whales.
The crew member briefed us.
The journey commenced.
A recent news item had forewarned me when I boarded the boat about a whale which had swallowed a person. The man had spent a few seconds in a whale’s stomach before being thrown out by it. Though unhurt, the harrowing experience had caused him enormous mental agony. Thankfully the lady crew erased my apprehensions.
The watch commences.
Finally we arrived at the location and as the boat slowed down, my granddaughter, Serena was first to point out at the snout and the tail that stuck out of the water. We were not allowed to approach nearer to where the whales were playing. We would have loved to see them from a closer distance. The watch continued for nearly an hour, the whales obliged us by showing us only their snouts and tails and not their entire body. I do not know why did they do this? Shy? Maybe!
From a distance of around 200 yards I could see the whales moving under water in groups. Captured them in these videos.
Have a ‘whale’ of a time folks!
