Default Whales in the Mediterranean

Hi All,

I am just back from a delivery to Monaco from the Southampton Boat show.

I was really pleased on this trip to see Fin, Pilot and Sperm Whales. Despite having logged tens of thousands of miles in The Med I have never seen a Whale there... One of the crew is a keen whale watcher (running trips in both Mexico and Greece), and he insisted that we would; we just needed to look in the right place! Even he was extremely excited though to witness a pod of Sperm Whales, and kept saying how lucky we were. Have any of you seen whales in the Med?

I put together a short film of just the whales and dolphins (don't worry, no sailing yachts were harmed in the making of this film!).



Pete

That's a bad link, Pete. Thanks for posting though. I've seen many hundreds of whales and never get tired of them.

One memorable night they were blowing all around the boat all night on a clear starry warm evening off California.
