Watching the Whales

It’s that time again. When an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 endangered humpback whales, consisting of approximately
two-thirds of the North Pacific stock, heave their flukes and bail on the frigid feeding grounds off Alaska to frolic
for a couple of months in the wonderful warm waters of Hawaii where they breed and calve.
The writer heads out on a whale-watching
expedition and spots some of the massive mammals hanging out.
