Whale time.

Springtime in Mexico brings frequent whale sightings as the gentle giants start their migration toward Alaska and the cold, nutrient rich waters of the north for the summer.  Many of the Humpback and other whales calve here in and around Banderas Bay during the winter then start heading north around March, April and May.  During these months we are able to see far more whales than normal and we love it! 

Here are a few pics of a lone Humpback that we saw and cruised along side of during our trip back to Puerto Vallarta from Chacala just a couple days before Marne's sister and niece had to leave us to go back to the States.  It was indeed a nice parting gift.
