Alaska: Humpback Whales


On our first day in Alaska, we took a 6-hour cruise around Kenai Fjords National Park.  I was hoping more than anything else to see whales, and sure enough, we did.  Our triple-decker catamaran was maneuverable enough to get very close to them, and they didn't seem to mind us.  This was a mother and her baby, and she was observing as it practiced breaching.
