Fin Whales

Photos Taken July 5, 2005

The Fin Whale (Finback Whale) is the second largest whale species. This is a baleen whale. We enountered a loosely scattered group of them whle we were cruising in the central part of the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez). They seemed in a relaxed mood, not doing anything they regarded as particularly urgent.
