Whale Watching Aboard the "Whales Tail" Aug.15, 2009

Today their was around 5-7 whales in the vicinity of Depoe Bay harbor and the folks got to get a look at them all, "Ice Cap" put on a great show. There were also several Humpback whales just offshore. There was a report of some gray whales 3-miles offshore.

Adult males are about 45 feet long. Adult females are slightly larger, and measure about 50 feet long. Both sexes weigh 30-40 tons. A 45-foot, 35-ton gray whale is about the same size as 10 large elephants. The largest gray whales have flukes, or tails, that may span 10 feet.
