Whale on the Port Side 0730hrs
“What’s that?” Said Tony. We both looked over the side trying to decipher whether this huge thing in the sea, inches from our hull, was a risk to us. Initial thought, is it a container? Then obviously frightened the whale awoke and emitted a brown cloud into the sea...thank goodness the water maker wasn’t on! The huge whale easily as long, if not longer than us, turned gracefully. I dived below for a camera and to wake Denis. All to quickly, as we came up the companion way steps, Tony reported it had disappeared astern. We think it was a humpback whale, but not sure.
