Cruising Alaska, July 2007 - Sitka
|Humpback whales are the primary target for most boat tours in Southeast Alaska, and we were soon with an active whale. Humpbacks can reach about 55 feet in length, but this one was likely in the 40-foot range. Individual whales can be identified by the white markings under the tail, which are as unique as a human fingerprint.|
