Seasick and Happy

29 06 2013

I was recently informed that these two words should never be used in the same sentence. But it accurately described the situation. The waves were pushing 3 meters and nearly the entire boat was hanging over the side…. throwing up, while joyfully exclaiming, and taking pictures. And the show was worth it, this whale breached over 50 times, rolled around, and slapped its fins on the water!

It is known that Humpback whales breach more frequently in rough seas. No one is entirely sure why they do so, but some think it is to shed parasites or for communication. Thanks to Lauren for the picture!
