While the whales spent their summer in Alaska as there is plenty their primary food source ,we went to Alaska for fun and to see and experience the overwhelming nature. Eventually we also saw whales in Kenai Fjords NP.
In fall the whales will swim all the way down to the shallow bays of Baja California, MX to give birth to their pups and to mate again.
So here I am, drove all the way down to go out on a boat ab see those whales again.
Very impressive animals.
If interested find more info in wikipedia.
To top this I went swimming/snorkelling with the whale shark in the bay of La Paz.
Unfortunately the water was very unclear. Nevertheless we could get really close and it is beyond words when just ahead of you the biggest fish on earth opens his mouth and filters all the plankton.
