Humpback Whale sighting
Mon 17 Nov 2014 18:33
I have just witnessed one of the greatest sights of my life....
Sailing down from St Lucia to St Vincent I saw two Pilot whales swimming along minding their own business and that made my day. Then I happened to look out to starboard and saw a Humpback leap clear of the sea and crash back on it's back. My exclamation of joy raised Gill from her slumber and she came on deck. The water where the whale had landed was still deep blue and flattened....
Then twice more the whale jumped so Gill got to see the amazing sight and not just the aftermath of the splash!
I would estimate that the whale was about 10-12 metres long and about 200 metres away when it first jumped.
It ranks as one of the most awesome sights I have ever seen. I can't find words to really describe how great it was but if ever you get a chance maybe you will understand
Take care and have fun
Love Alasdair, Gill and the gang...u
