Leviathan

The crystal clear waters of the Silver Bank reveal a mother Humpback and her calf.

She weighs in at 45 feet and 35 tons - a "Goliath" for sure, but certainly not a "monster". Sadly, that public image of whales prevailed for many years during the time in our history when we hunted and killed them relentlessly. Marine biologists estimate that the Humpback Whale population was reduced by 95%, but they are now making a steady comeback.
