One of the most impressive sight this trip was the humpback whales. Apparently each can be recognised by the pattern of white on the tail. The closest they go to the boat was about three meters, talk about WOW experience

The warm light, deep blue of the ocean, and the majestic simple form of the tail make this a truly beautiful scene!,
