One would think that the largest animal on the planet would be easy to find, but the Sea of Cortez is a big place.
We watched in amazement as the feeding frenzy culminated in diving birds, the leaping of common dolphins, and the sound of whales breathing.
Their tongues can weigh as much as an elephant. Their hearts, as much as an automobile.
We’d found the giant of all whales and the largest animal to ever inhabit our planet - the blue whale! And we didn’t find just one.
We had a very blue week in the Sea of Cortés - blue sky, blue ocean, and many, many, many blue whales.
