On vacation, Encounter with a Blue Whale

On vacation this week (again) and during a Whale watching trip this video was taken.


  • Where did the Paddleboarder come from? 
  • Why is his dog on the paddleboard? 
  • Where did they go?

Blue Whales are scarce and about 4,000 exist today.  They weigh 175,000 or so Kilos and are around 50 meters long.

Sailing a paddleboard into a region of a Blue Whale could be dangerous, not that the Blue Whale would hurt you intentionally, but they don’t see small objects when they surface.  Oh well.

It was a fun day for me.
