Discovery Passage, BC Ferries, Canada (2002)

The captain spotted some Humpback Whales ( Megaptera novaeangliae ) and stopped the engines for us, so we could take some photographs! It is estimated that there are just 10,000 Humpback Whales worldwide. They may weigh 40 tons and grow to more than 12 m in length.
