Singing with the Whales

During our last afternoon on the water we were tracking an elusive whale. We knew it was a male when our driver suddenly shut off our idling engine and called for quiet. Sitting in our skiff, we could hear the whale singing below us. Only the males sing.

We dropped a hydrophone over the side to listen and record. Then we quietly slid into the water. The whale was so close that our chests were literally throbbing with his joyful song!
