Fun day, now for some fun Whale Facts….

 On a rather, unusual weather day, we had fun out on our cruises today.
We had a slow start to the day but on our last cruise  the whales all came out to play
We saw a pod of whales along the horizon but we stuck with three whales, two males and a female which we saw them perform head lunges, tail slapping and breaching !

Humpbacks song is a series of squeaks and grunts that forms a beautiful melody.
 
The four-chambered heart of the average humpback whale weighs about 430 pounds (195 kg) - about as much as three average adult human beings. 
 
Humpback whales can dive for up to 30 minutes, but usually last only up to 15 minutes.
Humpbacks can dive to a depth of 150-210 m
The humpback whale has about 330 pairs of dark gray baleen plates with coarse gray bristles hanging from the jaws
