First comes the blow,
then the body
and if you're really lucky the tail, or flute, as the whale dives deep.
We also saw sea lions and listened to them bark.
We saw a mother and calf humpback whales swimming side by side, and many others during our cruise. As we headed back to the ferry port we also saw orcas, or killer whales. This was probably my favorite Alaska adventure so far, I highly recommend it!
