Whale Watching

Guest Blog:

Over the past couple of years we have heard comments from captains from various companies state that they felt military air exercises have perhaps scared off the Humpback Whales or that Humpbacks had not been spotted for several weeks coinsiding with a period when there has been training going on.This article on “Whale advocates sue Navy over sonar exercises” is and interesting one that we felt was worth passing on.

If you have experience with this from either standpoint we would be very curious to hear your thoughts after having a read.Thanks to CBSnews.com for posting the article and to all those that share an opinion with West Coast Aquatic Safaris!
