I will follow up in a later post my observations on the usual failings of our tourism industry bent on short term greed, in both being unable to make the experience unforgettable not just for the Tourist but also for the Whales.
If you are a whale in the water how would you like 40 boats chasing you whenever you surface. Is it surprising that the deafening sound of engines, much more amplified for the whales is a daily infringement of their freedom to roam the seas?
This is the greatest concentration of blues in the world and we just have no clue how to add value to that experience.
Just hand it to the Americans, and just see how well they will organize the show.
I have gone out to sea in Santa Barbara to see the BLUE whales when I was living and working there, and what a wonderful experience that was to both learn and show respect for the great est living creature on EARTH.
