A curious whale

We were sailing up the coast of Baja California with a light breeze, when we spotted a humpback whale following us.  She kept getting closer and even swimming under the boat so we decided to jump in the water to have a closer look at this curious whale.

We eventually spend 2 hours swimming with her.

She was as long as Lumbaz (13 mts/43 ft) and wasn’t shy of any contact.

It would be hard to describe what one feels when  swimming with such a big animal. She would make sounds that we could not understand but that really felt like she was talking to us.

It has been 3 years since this happened, but we still get a shiver up our spine when we remember it.

For sure, long lasting memories for each of us!
