One man had his dream fulfilled when he came face to face with a pod of whales just next to the boat he was on.
He and his family set out with the help of a local expert to find whales feeding, and with the experts help they tracked down their general location. Using the seagulls as a reference point, the knew the whales were close, so all they had to do was wait patiently and maybe be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the magnificent creatures.
Humpback whales can grow up to 60 feet in length as fully grown adults, far bigger than the boat they were travelling in. Their hope was to see the whales “breaching”, a term used to describe the whales propelling themselves out of the water to catch fish. It didn’t take long for the whales to show themselves, and they had one man stunned and speechless!
