|Rich on the look out for whales!|
|The boat was a large inflatable type, low to the water.|
Rich and one of our guides.
We jumped in the water 3 times before lunch and each time the whales swam away. After lunch we followed four different groups of whales but they kept moving never staying put for us to get in and attempt to interact. Needless to say we were extremely bummed. We did find a pod of spinner dolphins!
|Without the sun the water was murky and the whales were down deep.|
As for underwater photos........ This was it. Murky whales and our fins!
Our friends on Mango Moon went out with Whale Discoveries and had the completely opposite experience. Lisa sent me her close up underwater photos and I included them below. Thank you Lisa! They are just amazing. Rich and I are not giving up. We will have our moment with the whales!!!
|I love seeing their eye.|
