I have heard people talk about the whales song but have never heard
it and was under the impression it was only a sound that marine biologists heard… but boy was I wrong
We have been in Maui for 2 nights, soon to be 3 and we couldn’t have
picked a better season to come. Directly our front our condo we can see the massive,
beautiful hump back whales breaching in the water and playing with their young.
Mating and birthing season is coming to an end within the next few weeks and the HumpBacks will move along to other waters.
Today we went on a snorkel trip to swim with the turtles on our way back we could see the whales dancing all around us. While snorkeling on the reef tour, our guide mentioned that if you were able to dive down about 10 feet you could hear the whales song, so off I went, down about 10 feet and I could heard this beautiful noise. On our way back the captain stopped the boat, true down an underwater microphone and we listened to the whales song for 10 minutes –
WOW – breathtaking! Our marine biologist who can along on the trip said this was the best he has ever heard him sing- yes him!
It is only the male whales who sing trying to woo a female humpback whale to mate and occasionally battle for her love.
Yesterday we sat on our porch and watched a little tyke and his momma jump out of the water, splash their tails, and flip their flippers.
If you have heard a whales song you know how beautiful this noise is, definitely one that is hard to forget.
