Hi everyone! I know that I haven’t posted since January but school, soccer and summer has kept me so busy that I almost forgot to share with you guys some really cool stuff!!! I had almost forgot about something super, super great that happened back at the start of March…I went to Hawaii!!!!
Hawaii was spectacular and the best part was that I got to see the humpback whales in peak whale season! There were so many whales in Hawaii that you could see them right off our beach! When we went on the catamaran the most awesome thing happened……a mama and baby whale breached right in front of our boat!! Here’s what happened… When we first saw the mama and her calf the crew immediately invited us up to the very front of the boat! We sat there for about 1 min when suddenly the mama whale breached about 50 feet away from us. Next the baby breached even closer, 20 feet! It was amazing to see the mama whale teach the baby how to breach. It was so close you could feel tiny splashes of sea water on us. Check out the picture my dad took of the breach.
We probably saw all the whale behaviors that day.
- Pec Slap
- Head Slap
- Tail Slap or Lob Tailing
- Breach Splash
- Fluke Anyway that is it for today’s blog post. Have an amazing day!
