"You've got whales too!"

This video made me think of  Warren Richey's  WITHOUT A PADDLE, the story of his water race around Florida in The Ultimate Florida Challenge.  I thought gators and snakes were scary but holy H2O those blue whales are BIG!

I had the chance to see humpbacks in the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia three summers ago, and it was the most magical experience, but this is even more spectacular. Thanks for sharing it.


Papillon crew said...


We have sailed 6000 km on Papillon in the past year, and we haven't seen a whale yet. Lots of dolphins, some manatees and turtles but no whales.

Well, okay, reading that again I guess I don't have anything to complain about, but still. Whales!

Wow! To dunk your head in the water and come face to face with a giant blue whale! Incredible. I'd take them over gators any day. Whales don't eat you.

Although, when he said, "Suzie is nowhere to be found" I couldn't help but hear the Jaws music in my head. I do hope that was her at the end.
