I can’t wrap my mind around the absolutely incredible things we witnessed yesterday! We had so many different encounters all day, starting with a very beautiful, sorrow-filled song by a singer who we actually got to see several times in beautiful blue water. We then made our way a short distance where we saw two blows rising up in the sunrise light. We slipped in the water to see a pair of courting whales in the shallow reef. Both were floating just above the reef in about 30 feet of water, and we silently watched them from the surface. The female would push bubbles up every few minutes, while the massive male would occasionally touch her with his pectoral fin or his nose. After spending some time with them, we decided to make our way south, to see what the whales were doing on the opposite side of the islands. Little did we know what was in store for us! After cruising a while, we heard on the radio that there was a pod of five, very playful adult whales on the surface. We found them in no time, as they were fin slapping and cruising right on the surface playing together. We were thrilled to see the almost fully-white whale. Our unicorn! Only a small sliver of black on his head and back makes his markings extraordinary. We watched them play from the surface just to see what their behavior was like. When we slipped in the brilliant water filled with light rays beyond belief, we were a part of something truly incredible. Five adult whales were extremely curious about us. The whales were swimming very slow, choosing to interact with us full on. I spent over 15 minutes side by side with the giant female, almost totally black in color, as she swam sideways with me. She constantly reached her pectoral fins out to me, as if she wanted to give me a hug. I swam in awe, for this whale looked into my soul and I will never forget how this whale made me feel. I had to suck in a few sharp breaths so her fin would not touch my dome port as we swam so close to each other. In this image, the whale I am referring to is the one on the top - you can see how she lays sideways just under the surface. *please see the comment below for the rest of the caption*

This birthday ✨ 35 ✨ will be hard to beat. I spent the morning with my kiddos. This afternoon with Evan and our friend Rafe, touring around the islands, and this evening with Evan; then welcoming home our dear friends from a long summer vacation. And also there were whales. And also there was wine And lots of kisses ✨💜✨

Why wait for what’s right in front of you? It’s only one mindset away. 😉 "Everyone is granted the same time every day. The difference is do you value yours? Do you value what you bring to the table? If not then start figuring out what makes you valuable. Your time is valuable and you deserve to treat it as an investment! . . . #motivationmonday #entrepreneurmindset #passiveincome  #cryptocurrency  #crypto #cryptocurrencies  #trading  #blockchain  #ethereum #bitcoin  #forex  #money  #luxury  #stocks #laptoplifestyle  #billionaire  #luxurylifestyle #richkidsofinstagram  #xrp  #bitcoinmillionaires #success  #bitcoin  #icx  #eth  #neo  #ltc  #btc #ethereum #whales  #entrepreneur

We basically live out on the ocean in the summer. This past weekend while we were out checking our lobster traps, two Minke whales came up to our boat to say hello. It was breathtaking watching them swim alongside us. Reason number 1,098,432 why we live here. • • • #flashesofdelight #mantle #mantlestyling #whales #capecod #ocean #oceanminded #brick #whitewashed #nautical #coastal #coastaldecor #coastlliving #countryliving #designnofive #nantucket #interiors #interiordesign #interiordesigner

To many #whales to count. A wonderful happening in Madagascar every year in July and August. Jumping, splashing, swimming, even when we woke up looking outside we already saw them passing by! 😳 #nature #wildlife #madagascar #adrenaline #travel met @petervanluttikhuizen

🐬🌞 I was facing into the sun when I took the photo, which is why the dolphin is silhouetted, but thought the way the sunlight reflected off the flying dolphin was pretty cool. 😎🤙🏼 Taken yesterday aboard @danawharf. #commondolphin #danawharf #marknewmanphotography Ⓜ️🆕

Regrann from @respectanimalrights - The shocking new report states that many of the 100,000+ #dolphins, small #whales, and #porpoises that are slaughtered each year, are used as fishing bait. Most of these hunts are unregulated, illegal, and unsustainable, with potentially wide-ranging adverse impacts on small cetacean populations. - Sandra Altherr, biologist for the #Germany-based charity @pro_wildlife said, “Most people think of #Japan and the #FaroeIslands when talking about dolphin hunts but numerically, the Faroe Islands are not in the top 10 of small cetacean-killing nations and Japan is only ranked 10th. That is because #Peru, #Nigeria, and #Madagascar kill small cetaceans not only for food but also for bait, and are now among the most dangerous places on earth for these animals.” - Peruvian fishermen currently kill up to 15,000 dolphins a year for shark bait, according to the report’s findings.💔🐬 - Read More 🌍👉 www.WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews @peace_4animals Via @worldanimalnews - #regrann

The bone pile. In the fall after the native settlement of Kaktovik have done their traditional whale hunt, the unusable parts of the whale (and caribou) are placed outside of town where polar bears will gather to feed on the remains. Polar bear tourism has become vital in creating a sustainable part of the local economy. #ilcp_photographers #arcticrefugestories #beaufortsea #northernliving #sustainableliving #arcticnationalwildliferefuge #whales #whaling #polarbears #ecotourism #traveltheglobe #explorealaska #canoekayak #expedition #exploremag #northofordinary #paddleforever #natgeoyourshot #cbcnorth

You surrendered one of your own today How, why, when, no one can say. But here this magnificent ocean dweller lies gathering a curiosity of human flies. Your battered, bloodied corpse tells a tragic desperate tale, the end of a life hardly begun for this Humpback whale. I've never been present at such a scene, overwhelmed with sadness at the loss of this beautiful being. I bend and whisper "I'm sorry this isn't what you deserve", my head still bowed, I step back and observe a single tear suspended in your lifeless eye. I see my reflection in that last hopeless drop, my vision blurs and my own cascade down my face. How utterly alone and afraid in your final moments in a place so alien to your birth, no longer beneath the waves, your final resting place, but beneath the earth it shall be and your last tear will forever reflect the deep sadness in me. #saveouroceans #humpbackwhale #loss #marineconservation #sciencesaveslives #whales #nature #naturelover #love @drchrisbrown @bindisueirwin @driverminnie @officialgoldiehawn @therock @henrycavill @samheughan @gal_gadot @protectingoceans

🇧🇷 Pra mim, Abrolhos foi o ponto alto da minha viagem até Prado. Apesar de ser muito cansativo (ficamos 13h ao total dentro do barco), conhecer esse paraíso no meio do nada foi algo que jamais vou me esquecer. Não só pelo lugar em si, mas tivemos a oportunidade de cruzar com pelo menos 15 baleias jubartes durante o caminho que fizeram um show a parte pra gente! Abrolhos parece um daqueles lugares que só tinha visto em filmes, sabe? Formações rochosas diferentes de tudo que já tinha visto, muitos pássaros que moram nessa ilha e uma vida marinha surreal! Bem nesse lugar da foto foi onde eu fiz snorkel, e ai embaixo de mim, tem tanta vida marinha que vcs nem imaginam! Vi muitos cardumes de várias especies de peixes nadando em volta de mim e corais tão coloridos que davam vida a tudo que eu estava vendo e sentindo. Abrolhos realmente é um paraíso perdido pela Bahia ❤️ Quem organizou meu passeio até aí foi a @pousadacasademaria e todos que reservarem com eles via direct ou email, tem 10% de desconto! Hora de voltar pra casa com um sentimento gigante de gratidão por tudo que eu vivi nesses últimos dias! Quem mais amaria conhecer esse lugar? Marca aí nos comentários! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🇺🇸 For me, Abrolhos was the highlight of my trip to Prado. Although it is very exhausting (we stayed 13 hours total in the boat), visiting this paradise in the middle of nowhere was something that I will never forget. Not only for the place itself, but we had the opportunity to cross with at least 15 humpback whales along the way that made a private show for us! Abrolhos looks like one of those places I've only seen in movies, you know? Rock formations different from everything I've ever seen, many birds that live on this island and the amazing marine life! Right in this place in the pic I went snorkeling, and underneath me, there is so much marine life that you can’t even imagine! I saw so many fishes swimming around me and corals so colorful that they gave life to everything I was seeing and feeling. Abrolhos really is a lost paradise in Bahia ❤️ Who organized my trip was @pousadacasademaria and all who book with them via direct or email, have a 10% discount! Time to go home now ❤️
