amazing whale photo!

Kayaker enjoys amazingly close encounter with humpback whales

I'd be willing to bet money the bottom of that kayak is full of some stinking brown sticky stuff!

pointing out that kayaking in a humpback whales nautral inshore habitat
and getting so close to them as in the photo and then the stated purpose in the article is for eco tourism should be criminal, which I believe it is under National Marine Mammals protection laws

Re: amazing whale photo!

A little further up the coast from Santa Cruz, where the Great White Sharks hangout, we call those kayaks "surface lures."

Some guy had the back end of his kayak bitten off a few years ago by a Great White (made to the beach in record time too)!

I don't see anyone getting hurt by this. Whales look like they are having fun, the guy had an amazing experience getting close to nature. Its all good.

not according to the scientists and fisheries veterinarians who consulted the marine mammal protection act and the law which requires you to remain 300 ft from surfacing and subsurface marine mammals

these humpback whales are in these shallow waters for a purpose and they are displaying courting

How is a guy in a kayak supposed to know whats going on 150 underneath him?? There are Kayak rentals right there at Cannery Row in Monterey, I have rented there before. And, its right near the Coast Guard base. I am going to go out a limb... and say its legal.

Re: amazing whale photo!

I was there shooting pictures of the same group of whale from the shore shown on the background. My image is not this close but shows the whales with the kayaker and the boat where this photographer took his shot.

It was a surfing competition event and a movie production was also participating for an upcoming 2012 surfing movie.

Re: amazing whale photo!

Heres what i saw. The boat and the kayaker was there before the whales. the photographer was presumably taking promotional shots of the surfing event and everything interesting. When the whales showed up and got closer to shore then the kayaker and the boat just stuck around them. They did not go out of their way to get close but just got lucky enough to be close by. There were other boats and kayakers but farther away from the whales.

In other news, thread derailments at MLP are at an all-time high. This coincides with...well, you figure it out.

World population growth being what it is, eco-tourism is many species' last and only hope.

yes but promotion of eco-tourism by glamorizing illegal acts and encouraging people to pursue the cetacean close up by means of feeding and courtship behavior doesnt serve the animal well

Re: amazing whale photo!

So why is it when our oldest son was a deck hand on a fishing boat and they were anchored out for the night up the coast a few years ago at twilight, a Humpback surfaced right next to them, scaring my son with his exhalation, eyed them for a minute, then roamed off?

My understanding is that motorized vessils (especially high pitched jet-ski watercraft), are the main culprit in the "harassment" of whales cruising here in the Monterey Bay, which is indeed a marine sanctuary.

If Fish & Game, nor the US Coast Guard issued any citations in this well-publicized "violation," I just don't get that those cavorting Humpbacks were being dissuaded from their humping.

They're curious creatures.

If they were victims they'd be on Oprah.
