I was lucky enough to spend a few days at Cabo Pulmo on the Sea of Cortez, Baja Peninsula in Mexico. I was on the ocean near the coast on small boats a lot of the time – and in the perfect spot to see whales. There were many Humpback whales in the area and although we kept a distance they sometimes came very close to us. The whales seemed much more concerned with each other than us and we were treated to many breaches and huge waves of spray as they came crashing down. With my 300m lens I managed to get some photos that I have posted below.

Absolutely incredible, thank you.
WOW! Incredible photos! I’ve always been fascinated by the humpback whale and I couldn’t imagine the majesty it would be to be in their presence.
Magnificent, and such an honor.
Awesome! Brings back good times when I did an stint as an onboard naturalist while living in Maui. They can be very curious about us!
Wasn’t it a bit scary when they came so close?
helps to have a 300 zoom lens!
