Beautiful Breaching Gray Whale!

On many of our recent Whale Watching Cruises we’ve seen spectacular breaching behavior where the whale leaps our of the water and lands with a huge splash. Why do whales breach? Scientists believe that the loud smack made as the whale hits the surface may be a way to communicate with other whales, especially those that are not close by. It may also be a way to dislodge pesky parasites or may just be having fun. Whatever the reason, a breaching whale is always a fan favorite on our cruises.
