For many of us the first time we have a chance to see whales can be quite a profound experience. Whether they are in a far off part of the world and we are traveling or perhaps in our own back yard for those that live in or around the Pacific, it is something truly amazing that will stick with us forever.
We would love to hear from past visitors, local residents and those that have had the chance to be in the presence of a whale. Tell us what kind of whale you saw, where you were when you saw it and what it meant to you. We also welcome you to post your photos on our Facebook page so that we can add them to a future gallery of whales around the world!
