We really have a very beautiful planet, and it is gifted with plenty of breath-taking views of land and water formations. Apart from extraordinary landscapes, comes the bounty of the seas and oceans where one of the most sought-after aquatic creatures is the whale. Whale-watching has been a prominent leisure activity for individuals and families in most coastal areas in Australia.
The killer whale
Killer whales are commonly identified by its two distinct colours of black and white. They usually are paired with dolphins in ocean parks and resorts that allow children and adults to witness their tricky swimming prowess as they breach the water with their noses up, while gliding sideways to create spiral waves and finally spurting water from their backs before finally diving underneath for yet another awesome routine.
Actual killer whale watching on deep seas is best experienced when local and foreign tourists are onboard a chartered boat. The same swimming routine is shown, and sometimes, if you are lucky enough, killer whales appear by pair, like a mother whale and its month-old offspring. For a couple instances, the offspring mimics what the mother whale is doing. Surprisingly, the adult allows the young to breach up the water first and using her huge tail, flips or tosses the young far up in the water. This would create a series of surges and splashes which in turn deserves an astounding round of applause from the audience.
The Humpback whale
There are a lot of reasons why people really love to watch humpback whales. Primarily, it’s not every day that you see these creatures surface from underneath in order to breathe fresh air on a regular basis. These warm-blooded sea animals have huge bodies with fat layers, and later on, its life will definitely turn to or become its prominent flippers.
Another distinguishing feature of the humpback whale for the keen eye watching them surface in the water is its unique and protruding hump right before their dorsal fin, which is probably why experts attribute this physical characteristic to its name as one of the most known whale species in the deep waters of the ocean. Moreover, they have this lengthy, scar-like pleats on their throats that seemingly resemble those folded partitions in a female’s skirt school uniforms.
When they perform close to an audience, a telescope could easily notice their light-coloured bellies and dark backs. Finally, consider yourself as the god of the sea when you hear them offer their songs of magic. A series of squeals, cries, howls, and moans could be heard for hours across the vast oceans of the world and along with other noises, remain a mystery for scientists, who right now are still trying to decode its clandestine mea
