We had spotted a Blue Whale a few hundred meters away from our boat and headed in that direction for a bit. While waiting for the blue whale to surface, our naturalist aboard spotted a blue shark. We observed the shark for a few minutes and nearly forgot about the whale. While we were all still amazed about the shark, two blue whales surfaced only a few meters away from our boat that it caught us all off guard. It was certainly an amazing first encounter with blue whales!
