Humpback Whale Diving

Strait of Juan de Fuca - Victoria, B.C.

"Race Rocks" Lighthouse is in the background.

Humpbacks come in 4 different color schemes, ranging from white to gray to black to mottled. There are distinctive patches of white on underside of the flukes (tail). These markings are unique to each individual whale, like a fingerprint.

The deeply-notched flukes (tail) are up to 12 feet (3.7 m) wide. Humpbacks have a small dorsal fin toward the flukes.

other sizes: small medium original auto
