Mama Blue & Baby Blue Whale sighting in May!
Seeing mama blue and baby blue out on the ocean was such a site to behold!
Passengers were awestruck, and the crew had an awesome trip sighting these beautiful creatures.
Blue Whales (Balaenoptera musculus) are one of the largest creatures to ever live on our planet! The average size of a blue whale is 80-90ft, with the largest recorded whale measured 110ft (that’s the size of two school buses parked end to end!) Blue whales are found in all oceans, and in the western Pacific Ocean, blue whales range from Gulf of Alaska, which is an area rich in food, all the way to Costa Rica, where it is believed they migrate to bread and have their young. Blue whales are currently listed as endangered animals with only about 2,500 left in the North Pacific population.
