Listen to "Unchained Melody" which is the theme song from the movie "Ghost" and enjoy.

When I have free time one of my favorite thing to do is go whale watching!

I've been many places along the coast lines of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Naturally everywhere I go I do my best to see the whales in that area as they are my favorite mammal--next to cats that is. 

Here you will see some of the pictures I have collected of those gentle giants BUT bear with me as it takes awhile to scan and load the pictures especially when I'm not always at my desktop PC. Also some of my pictures are still in New York.

Meanwhile please visit Cape Cod Dolphin Fleet as this is the company I go with whenever I'm in the Northeast. This fleet works with the Cetacean Research Center of Cape Cod and sets to sea out of the Provincetown Harbor. FOLKS--I hope you can see the Whale Video Gallery which runs off their website so you can watch whales in action.

I can't wait till I save enough money to make another trip to California. I have recently been made aware that  Monterey Bay Whale Watch offers whale watching trips all year long! 

And yet another site of interest is MBNMS: Whale Watching in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

I finally got some time to post some of my personal pictures from my many whale watching trips. These photos were all taken from the Dolphin V vessel out of Provincetown, MA.

Yes the Dolphin V and other Dolphin ships gets real close to the whales. You can see someone's hand in the photo on the left look how close the whale is to the bow of the ship on the right.

Whales2.jpg (106259 bytes)Quite often there will be several whales in one area. How many can you spot?

 

 

Whales3.jpg (86213 bytes)This whale was doing what is called spy-hopping.

 

 

Whales4.jpg (147813 bytes)This whale was having fun while slapping his/her side fluke on the water.

 

 

Whales5.jpg (121033 bytes)Alright can you spot this whale's eye?

 

 

Whales6.jpg (124891 bytes)This is one of my many shots of a whale's tail though its from the top side. I shall soon try to scan some pictures of the under side where you can see the spots that the researchers use to identify the whales.

 

Here are three more pictures I took of whale's tails. Hope you like them.

In addition to whales I also enjoy seeing dolphins. There are two places I'd love to go someday--

Discovery Cove It's across the road from the entrance to Sea World in Orlando, FL.

Dolphin Research Center  It's located in Marathon, FL and is all about the Dolphin and Sea.
