11 of 15 from Aristazabal Island - Day 5, 6

Megaptera novaeangliae (Humpback Whale)

At this location, the whales would come up to the surface and breath about 5 to 8 times and then dive again, generally for 6 to 8 minuets. You can tell there last breath at the surface because you would see the hump back, and then the tail as they go down.
