It was a truly beautiful encounter, and an amazing way to end the trip, which has delivered way more than I have ever expected! We’ve seen orcas, humpbacks, grey whales, blue whales, fin whales, whale sharks, dolphins, coyotes, sea lions, dive bombing pelicans – all in a space of a week! And these were not blink and you’ll miss it encounters, but sustained periods where I was able to really observe and try to understand these animals. The gentle giants expedition turned out to the be ultimate way to tick big animals off your bucket list, and have a lot of fun while you do it! I am truly grateful for what I’ve seen, and the amazing experiences that I’ve shared with my trip buddies – Anne (sign connoisseur), Nana (salsa picante), Petra (whale shark), and of course Mr Dive Ninja himself Jay (triple chocolate meltdown)! I want to say a huge thank you to you guys for being super fun and sharing my love for these giants. And of course a big thank you to all the whale guides, captains and tour operators who made this trip possible, and were really generous in sharing their backyard secrets with us. You guys are awesome! Total whale love! And now I need to start plotting my next whale trip….
