We had some indescribable interactions with Gray Whales just a week ago! There are no words that could explain what it feels like when a 35 ton giant decides to hover under your small boat, and then slowly maneuvers into position, so that it can emerge and lift its head out of the water, so gently that it does not touch the boat but it is close enough for you to reach out and rub his nose! No words can describe the feeling when the same 35 tons slowly submerge and blow a gigantic air bubble, just to entertain you and say 'hello', as well as make a perfectly co-ordinated flip with the tail, so that water splashes all over into the boat but again, he does not touch the boat or threaten anyone.
This interaction between two species, at their own will, can only be experienced in the field, words can not describe, images can not show. Join us on our next Baja California Wildlife Safari in January, 2012!
