blue whales in Long Beach

Looking for something different to take pictures of I decided to go whale watching in early September 2008:

On Saturday I headed down to long beach to go whale watching. Now is the season for Blue Whales, and they have been sighting them every time they have gone out for the last month or so. We found one and it put on a bit of a show for us. I don’t think these guys breach or do anything as exciting as that, but this one kept bringing his tail out of the water before he dived which was pretty exciting. We didn’t see any other whale types or dolphins, but given we saw a blue whale in the wild I can’t complain. Afterwards I headed into the aquarium of the pacific since it was right next door anyway.

Without further ado, here are the pictures:
