Bonaire - Humpback Whale

Humpback whales don't often visit Bonaire, but there were three this day. Several of us saw a tail slap and blow from shore and watched until there were two blows in about the same place, then Bob Knuth and I swam out over deep water with my Seacam/MkII. The humpback was near the bottom at 50-60' swimming slowing along parallel to shore. After a few minutes, he came up to check us out, came within 5', then swam off toward deeper water.

I was able to get 18 frames; they are here: http://chriscrumley.com Search Stock for "bonaire" and "humpback".
