Orca Breaching Composite
The whale doesn't need to get this far out of the water to breath - she (short dorsal fin) is looking at us.

Dive Sequence By Rocks
Here three whales were feeding quite close to a rock wall - the water is about 130 feet deep here. This Humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae) has most of one fluke missing.
Species: Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

Dive Sequence
At this location, the whales would come up to the surface and breath about 5 to 8 times and then dive again, generally for 6 to 8 minuets. You can tell there last breath at the surface because you would see the hump back, and then the tail as they go down.

Dive Sequence
I love all the water that runs off the flukes as the tail comes out of the water.
