This year has been an excellent year for humpback whales.  Most “whales days” view eight to ten whales. This is an excellent picture of a humpback whale fluking or its tail fin.  When a whale goes for a deeper dive it tends to push it’s nose down faster which lifts it back higher out of the water and this is normally followed by an opportunity for a good “fluke” picture.
