Oh my gosh, you guys. I finally did it. I finally went whale watching.
Okay, I lied. I've been whale watching like four times before. But in all those times, I've NEVER EVER seen a whale. Occasionally I see dolphins. That's it.
And now. I saw a WHALE. WHOO!
We lined up along the pier waiting for the boat to arrive. It was actually quite warm. I kind of regret ever bringing my jacket.
We traveled a bit further out to sea and ran across several other dolphins and more whale watching boats. Our guide told us that the boats all keep in contact to help each other find dolphins and whales.
The dolphins followed us for a while.
We were still in deep sea (about 1800 feet deep under our boat) when our guide suddenly got a call that there were gray whales in the area. He BOOKED it. It was a blast riding the waves so fast.
And then we saw them. GRAY WHALES. Two whales migrating and flashing their tails at us. It was awesome.
Unfortunately I don't have pictures because we were pretty crowded out, but here's an idea of what a gray whale looks like.
And I finally got to see a whale.
The guide got us back about half an hour late, but it was so worth it. Kudos to him.
So, yay me! I finally broke my bad luck in whale watching. I wanna do it again in the future.
What do you guys think about whales?
