After following a variety of humpback whales for 3 days through Prince William Sound, Alaska and seeing only the top of a dorsal fin, we were initially excited when this female humpback whale displayed her fluke. As we were celebrating capturing an image of the fluke, she breached right in front of us. Shocked, none of us got more than her splash as she crashed down in front of our boat. Much to our surprise and gratitude, she breached again. We were ready for round two.
