We went on another gray whale watching tour in Guerrero Negro, MX we saw over 100 gray whales, most with newborns. They spy hopped, breached, belly rolled, sprayed us, showed off their fluke and find. At one point, eight whales surrounded and circled our boat, to the point of vibrations rumbling the boat floor! They looked at us with their dark wise eyes and waved at us with their spotted fins. They showed us their bellies and rubbed them against the bottom of the boat, completely vulnerable and trusting. Yet, in this same lagoon, only 150 years ago, they were slaughtered by whalers.
One of the most incredible experiences of our lives.
