Never have I ever – watched a humpback whale bodysurf… until now!
After a day of work, we setup our sunset watching table: cheese, tea, crackers and binoculars. Jean asked if I had my camera. I said no, because we hadn’t seen any whale spouts all day long.
About five minutes later, all the beachgoers saw a huge pectoral fin as a humpback whale slapped around in the water and did a full body roll no more than 25 yards off the sand, just past the breakers!
I sprinted to the RV and was able to capture these photos as the humpback was playing or feeding just off the beach north of Depoe Bay, Oregon.
