The very beginning of the blue whale’s exhale! his blowholes still appear sealed, yet the tiny white clouds above them indicate that he has just begun to breathe out. the massive spout that’s about to form here can reach heights of thirty feet! 🐳💙

this adorable little princess pink narwhal is taking her first plane ride today! traveling across the us to her new forever home 😊 i think she'll be ok, but you know how moms worry 😂 so i packed her in loads of rose petals!
Within a few minutes of leaving edmonds marina on the whale watching boat saratoga, @artofsnow and ourselves were onto our first of many humpback whales. “two spot” one of the local “celebrities” gave us lots of photographic opportunities, unfortunately the several breaches were too far off to give any decent photo’s with the focal length i had during the trip. not long after we were treated to a minke whale feeding, making it two species for the day. having been fortunate to have experienced a few whale watching trips, i can say the saratoga was undoubtedly the best vessel so far, plenty of space for viewing, comfortable and fast is an understatement. a catamaran with hydrofoils mean we were clocking 40mph at times. the staggered viewing areas meant even the children got decent views of the whales and other aquatic inhabitants. thank you @pugetsoundexpress for a great experience. #sonya9#sony100400gm#humpbackwhale#pugetsoundexpress#pugetsound#seattle#whales#bealpha
Inktober day 12: whale
so this is a whale shark: confusingly not actually related to whales at all 🤔 they are sharks but get their name from their size. they are the largest fish on the planet. 😮 they can be up to 14m long and can way up to 12 tons or 11,000 kilos. that’s massive! i love the spotty patterns on their skin. 💙
