Did you know there are 65 lighthouses in Maine? On our whale watches we see as many as 9 lighthouses around Portland!

The humpback salute to Wollumbin. 🐋⛰ . We had some crazy active whales around @tweedgoldcoastdivecharters today - I lost count of the double breaches!! 😱 And I, very talentedly I might add, MISSED EVERY SINGLE FREAKING ONE. 🙈🙈🙈 With the camera at least - thank god I actually SAW them happen. But there will be no ‘pics or it didn’t happen’ for the breachathon today. 😂 (Actually, go check out the business (above ) or @timtam_75 ’s accounts - I believe they have started posting The Goods. 😍 ) . This was our very active lob-tailer who was going off with the tail slapping! He obviously got the attention of one of the other whales - after this dude took a breather, another one way off on the horizon started going nuts! . We’re not sure but we think lobtailing or tail slapping is used as a form of communication. The massive SLAP as the fluke hits the water is seriously loud and sound carries much further under water. . Off to Minjerribah tomorrow for some badly needed #islandtime - wheeeee! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 💙 . #whalesbysez #bealpha #abcmyphoto #whalewatch #humpbackwhales

📍 𝗔𝘂𝗴𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮 - 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 . Quelle expérience de dingue!!! 🙏🏽 avoir la possibilité d’approcher d’aussi prêt des baleines dans leur état le plus naturel possible!! Juste rester la à les regarder s’amuser, respirer, nager seule ou en groupe! C’est juste whaou!! Elles sont très joueuses, elles passent sous le bateau et agitent leurs nageoires devant nous!! De près on se rend compte à quelle point elle sont énormes !! Une superbe expérience ❤️🐋🙏🏽 . What an experience !! 🥰 We were blessed to see heaps of whales in their fully natural habit just breathing, playing, swimming in group. Was so impressive to be so close of them !! Such a magic moment 😍 #whaleswatching #augustawesternaustralia #southwestaustralia #westernaustralia #roadtripaustralia2020 #roadtripperthtoadelaide #perthtoadelaide #roadtripwesternaustralia #whaleslovers #whalewatch #naturelovers #animalslovers #adventuretime #coupleadventure #couplebackpacker #australia2020

Travelling with a Patagonian toothfish in its mouth, this female orca from the Crozet archipelago is about to share it with the rest of its pod. Such altruistic behavior has been witnessed by lucky fews as it happens offshore in rough seas nicknamed "The roaring forties" as no landmass blocks the wind and the gigantic waves. This picture has been taken by Paul Tixier who worked has a fishing observer aboard longliners.⁠ ⁠ They are actually battling with Sperm whales to access the precious toothfish.

Хорошая обтекаемость тела, мощные плавники и развитый хвост помогают косаткам развивать скорость до 56 км/ч. Однако при этом стоит отметить, что обычно они плавают не торопясь, приблизительно со скоростью 5-6 км/ч. ➡️ Подписывайся на @planetaocean 👈 чтобы добавить в свою ленту ещё больше красивых и удивительных фотографий косаток! 🌍👍 #orca #orcawhale #ocean #oceanview #oceanphotography #sunrise #sealife #whalewatching #whalewatch #orcalove #orcalover #whalelover #whalelove #Norway #norway 🇳🇴 #norway2day #oceanlife #oceanlover 🌊

Косатки встречаются во всех мировых океанах. Вместе с людьми и серой крысой (Rattus norvegicus ), косатки являются одними из самых распространенных млекопитающих на планете. Несмотря на то, что они распространены во всех океанах, все же чаще они встречаются в районах апвеллинга (районы с более холодной водой ). К таким районам относится северо-запад Тихого океана вдоль побережья северной Норвегии. Кроме районов с холодной водой, их также можно встретить в районах с теплой водой. К этим районам относятся воды Флориды, Австралии, Галапагосских островов, Южной Африки и т. д.

There’s many whales coasting by at the moment, travelling to warmer waters for breeding. There’s even a white humpback whale out there called Migaloo! 🐋 The totemic animal of the Sydney tribe here was the whale. During these migration periods, the aboriginals would light bonfires to help guide the whales passage safely at night. They travel within sight of the coast, coming up to eye the coastline . #whalewatch #whitewhale #migaloo #longbay #exploresydney #palmbeachtocronullawalk #malabar

CHOMP! We had a wonderfully calm and ☀️ day with 3 humpback whales feeding only a few miles outside the SB harbor! Anchovies were on the menu today as these gentle giants gorged themselves with lunge after lunge after lunge. For more than an hour straight these 3 humpbacks fed, breached, and played around our vessel. Although we had a dip in humpback numbers in the middle of our season, it seems as though these friendly beings are once again flourishing throughout the channel 🌈 Drone footage by @adam_ernster • • • • • #santabarbara #santabarbarachannel #seesb #humpbackwhale #humpbackbreach #whale #cetacean #megapteranovaeangliae #wildlifephotography #wildlife #artofvisuals #travel #earth #changingphotography #whalewatching #whalewatch #whale #condorexpress #condorexpresssb #earthcapture #nature

Competition pods were the theme yesterday as during the morning and afternoon the bachelor males took on each others challenges💪 One of the males was kicked out of the first afternoon competition pod we were involved in and he seemed so very frustrated, launching into a few enormous barrel role breaches which were incredible! #WhaleWatchWesternAustralia #JoinThePod #LearnTheLanguageOfTheWhales #WhaleWatchWA #WesternAustralia #Australia #ThisisWA #SeeAustralia #Perth #Fremantle #VisitAustralia #Nature #WhaleWatch #WhaleWatchingWesternAustralia #Augusta #AustraliasSouthWest #BremerBay #CetaceanExploration #WonderOutYonder

Touching whale is a dream come true Who wants to be sprayed in the face by a whale?! 🐋💦 Please READ below before commenting!! Amazing video and caption by @coffeethantravel “OMG A gray whale blew water into my face 😱 Best day ever? Before you all be like “did you just touch that whale?” Hell yeah I did and it was incredible. Let me explain, but first let me tell you about these amazing animals. Gray whales can grown up to 15 METERS long and weigh up to 36 tonnes. They live between 55-80 years and have the longest mammal migration is history covering up to 22,000 kilometres. Here in Lopez Matteos in West Baja California the whales come to the lagoons to raise their new born calves how to dive and survive before they make their journey back to the cold waters of Alaska. But why are we touching them after all we know as divers and ocean lovers about touching marine life? This is a very intimate and unique experience that the whales have actually created for themselves coming up to boats and seeking out human interaction. Along with studies proving the whales actually like to be rubbed, there have also been studies proving that no infection is passed through human touch (unlike many marine animals which is a big reason we don’t touch other marine animals ). A once-in-a-lifetime moment, experience and memory, and as always I feel humbled to have witnessed these wild animals in their natural environment without threat or abuse. 🐋” Repost @scubadiving_mylife Via @fathomlesslife For more 👉 Follow 👉 @scubadiving_mylife Follow 👉 @earthsevenseas

The Bowhead whale, also called Arctic or Greenland whale. 🐋 🎥 By @taichi_maruyama Bowheads are the only baleen whales that spend their entire lives in the Arctic seas. They are among the longest-living mammals on earth, reaching over 200 years of age! Thanks to their layers of fat over half a meter thick and a forehead so powerful that they can pierce up to two feet of ice sheets to breathe, they have conquered some of the harshest conditions in the world. 🐳❄ Video by @taichi_maruyama
