Whale Watching

We ended up being able to go whale watching yesterday. On Friday we were not to sure if we would be able to go or not because the weather has been quite rainy lately. We had two calls from the tour company telling us "bad weather" and "baby" and "cancel" then finally someone else who spoke just a little more English called and said they would tell us at the port if it would be OK to take a baby. It turned out to be a really nice day!

We got to the port early and were told where to park. Then we had to write our names on a waiver then told to wait. As it turns out, the lady didn't speak any English and that was the only thing she knew to tell us. So we waited while everyone else went to get on the boat until someone who spoke more English could try and translate.

We had a short ride out to the place where the whales were. The waves were pretty big and the boat was rocking a LOT. While we were just watching we pretty much had to hold onto the boat all of the time. We saw several whales - more than I thought we would!

There were about 10 boats in this area watching for whales. They would get so close to each other too!

After seeing the whales for about an hour it was time to come back to land. It was another fun day!

I think we are going to head over to the zoo in about an hour for some more fun!

I am going to try and get some videos on here but that is a different camera and different computer. The video camera software isn't Mac compatible so I have to dig the HP out.
