Humpback Whales in Paradise

Saturday 7th July 2007.

Spotted today from the oceanfront of Paradise were 4 Humpback Whales! Just meters from the lava rock waterfront, a pod of Humpbacks played and swam in the warm waters of the Somosomo Straits. Normally passing by the resort and the Straits from August to November, the whales arrived early to spend the morning splashing in the waters of Paradise Taveuni.

Paradise resort guests were the first to spot the whales sending the staff and other guests into a frenzy of picture taking.

Pictured here is our (not so great) attempt at capturing the beauty of these amazing creatures. So close to shore! Simply breathtaking!

Simply amazing! I'm too afraid to frequent your blog because I absolutely love diving. Being land-locked in the middle of the US, there are few opportunities to see such spectacles.
