Sharing moments in time…

Farewell Big Guys


Its probably time to get back to more mundane subjects but I thought I’d finish up with two more photos that I think give you a feel for San Ignacio.  The first is one of my favorites from the trip – a whale that has been interacting with us slipped under the boat, resurfaced for a final blow, and then bid us farewell.  I like the photo as it shows the scale of these mammals and you can see the fins extended from the body as she starts her blow.

Farewell Friends!

And of course, no visit to the sea can be complete without a brilliant sunset.  Our last evening did not disappoint as the sky lit up in glorious colors over beautiful San Ignacio Lagoon.

    • Hi Marina – for a spur of the moment trip, it turned out great! I was actually looking for just a local whale watching day trip when I stumbled upon this one – it was as good as advertised!

    Amazing stuff. I would be somewhat nervous they would over turn that little boat.. : )

    • Dianne – there was one instance where an adult whale “swiped” the boat with it’s tail (during one of the mating chases). We could definitely feel it but we were in no danger. It was actually fascinating to watch this massive tail swing at speed and hit our boat (all underwater).
