This young male finwhale has been found dead last Friday in the Arcachon Bay... it has been autopsied yesterday and we are now waiting for the results to understand the cause of death 😥 #whales#deep#stranding#finwhale#rorqual#atlanticocean#bassindarcachon#latestedebuch#protection#autopsy#friday#understand#bancdarguin#snsm#pelagis#cetaceans#sad#marinecreatures#marinemammals#giants#instanaturelovers

Having a whale of a time 🐋🐳🐋 #beluga #minke #finwhale #canada #whalewatching

First time whale watching this am and definitely won’t be my last! It was amazing 🐋 #finwhale#finback#whales 💕

CLOUDY DAY. In the summertime the weather of Svalbard often is dominated by fog. But sometimes there are magical moments like this, suddenly the clouds rise, the sun shines and there is nothing but beauty. Our HANSEATIC nature close to sea ice. More photos in our actual blog-post (link ⬆️ in bio). #hanseaticnature #hapaglloydcruises #hlcruises

Whale watching was awesome 🐋 we saw #humpbackwhale #finwhale and #minkewhale

Well that’s a very big whale! Fin whale seen on route to St Kilda. . . . . . #finwhale #whale #baleenwhale #stkilda #themonarchislands #emmajane #hebridescruises #happyguide #lovemyjob @hebridescruises

A pair of Fin whales. 2nd largest mammal, right behind the Blue whale. Our captain said these were rare to see and several crew members never seen one before this trip. It was very exciting for everyone on the boat to see. #majormarinetours #finwhale #whale #whalesofinstagram #wildlife #sewardalaska #alaska #travelalaska #canon #tamron #natgeo #marvelous_animals #visitalaska #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark

THAR SHE BLOWS. This is the famous call of the whalers in Melville’s epic novel „Moby Dick“. When our HANSEATIC nature is cruising the waters of Svalbard, the decks are filled with whale watchers when one of this beautiful animals can be seen in the distance. Our experts can differentiate the whales by their blow. The fin whale is well known for the characteristic high exhaust. After breathing they often dive – down to 470 meters below sea surface. #hanseaticnature #hapaglloydcruises #hlcruises

A Fin Whale! The second largest whale on the planet was spotted by our vessel Emma Jane north of the monarchs on the way out to St Kilda yesterday! Photo sent in by our guide @lynsey_bland 😊 @hwdt_org @thefinwhale @visitscotland #happyguests #finwhale #scottishcruises #hebrides #monarchs

Before Sputnik and Dong Fang Hong 1 were launched into orbit these ladies were born in China. I met them one day in a local park here in Vancouver and after chatting they agreed to pose for a photo which then turned into a painting. When the Chinese space program developed what would be their first successful satellite they named it Dong Fang Hong 1, or The East Is Red 1. One of its main goals was to, when it reached orbit, transmit a song into the cosmos. The song was called The East is Red, and it was a workers’ folk song extolling the virtues of communism. The satellite decayed soon after and Dong Fang Hong 1 burned up as it entered Earth’s atmosphere. Some time after that the ladies in my painting made a long trip to Canada to make a new life, long outliving the satellites smouldering beside them. . . This painting will be showing at @galerieyoun in their summer show which opens on July 4th. Come on down for the vernissage to see this and other works. . .

🐳In the stomach of a fin whale (balaenptera physalus)(class:cetacea) . They can grow maximal to 25,9 m and weight about 74 tonnes and can dive about 200 meters. Like blue whales they are also considerend endangered. 🐳 #finwhale #museum #cetacea #balaenoptraphysalus #whale #grunge #bones #nature

You might not know right away but dead whales do tell tales! Recent necropsy performed near the Channel Islands. Notice the bi-colored baleen of this rorqual, asymmetrical pigmentation, which indicates the species as the 2nd largest mammal in the world, the Fin whale.

More Facebook memories....this time last year - my first ever whale sighting. A stunning fin whale in the Moray Firth😃 Fin whales are the second largest mammal in the world. They are also IUCN Red Listed - Endangered. So this really was a truly humbling experience.

A fin whale blowing in heavy seas. This photo is objectively terrible, but it does accurately reflect how difficult it is to spot marine mammals in rough conditions. Above a sea state of 4, there are so many waves, whitecaps, shadows and spray that spotting a dark body or plume of breath from a moving ship becomes a nightmare. Luckily fin whales are the second largest animal on Earth; their columnar blows can reach up to 8m high and hang in the air for several seconds. This means they are one of the few cetaceans that can still be detected when the going gets rough!

Le balene. Whale. Questa volta #video. Come Achab è una vita che giro per il mondo e loro, le balene, vanno sempre via poco prima del mio arrivo. Questa volta sapevo che le megattere e gli squali balena, come al solito, non sarebbero stati ad aspettarmi..e invece..queste cinque fin whale (25 mt di animale) erano li a mangiare krill.. e a sbuffare .È una meraviglia del pianeta. -- I'm not Achab but i fell like. #whale'#finwhale #sea #savetheplanet #traveling #globetrottertravels #travel #balene #viaggiare #viaggi #bassacalifornia #bajacalifornia #mexico🇲🇽 #sealive

Join us at Bahia de los Angeles in the Gulf of California to experience an adventure of a lifetime. This marine reserve is in one of the world’s highest primary productivity areas and the Sea of Cortés, is one of the world´s interior seas with high productivity; with waters that maintain large populations of fishes, sharks, marine turtles and at least 14 types of whales and dolphins, in addition to clams and crustaceans. Its flora and fauna are originally from the Central Tropics and South America, and from the tempered coast of California in the Tropical Indo-Oriental Pacific.

Sometimes a lady blue whale and a manly fin whale will get together and give rise to a possibly fertile hybrid offspring. This is one of the only examples of this occurring in cetaceans. The whale has both characteristics of a fin and blue whale.

Thank you to Agathe and Emmanuel! We’ve had a lot of good times together, all started with a chance encounter in Laos. The latest adventure had 10 of our family members exploring Quebec. La Malbaie, Tadousac, ect. Whale watching, saw the worlds 2nd largest animals (Fin Whales). Stayed in a luxurious cabin overlooking rivière St.Laurent. Beautiful Canadian landscape, caught a nice (and delicious)Rainbow trout. And as always when in the company of the French, enjoyed some fine meals! #familytravel #quebec #finwhale #lamalbaie #naturelovers #stlaurent #bringthekids #explore #go #familytraveltribe #travelgram

Woooohzaaaaa! Whale Hello There 👀🐳👋 . Just off the coast of Tadoussac today I got to see 3 Fin Whales (2nd largest species on EARTH!!) and 10 Minke Whales and loads of seals just popping up and down 🌎 . Just this week Canada saw a new law, which bans capturing or holding the animals in captivity for breeding or entertainment. Amazing!! 🐳 . (this photo is zoomed in, we were a distance away on a small Zodiac boat) . #canada #whales #finwhale #minkewhale #humanecanada #inthewild #thesea #tadoussac #education #humanecanada #amongthewild #whalewatching #seals #instadoussac

El pasado martes tuvimos la suerte de avistar el primer Rorcual común de la temporada. Sin duda una experiencia inolvidable! 🐳☀️ . Last Tuesday we were lucky to see the first Fin whale of the season. An unforgettable experience! 🌊🐚 . . . #rorcual #rorcualcomun #finwhale #experience #costadelsol #costasolcruceros #benalmadena #fuengirola #malaga

Weighing in at 80 tons and measuring at least 26 m (85 ft), the fin whale is the second largest creature on earth after its cousin, the blue whale. They even start out massive, with baby fin whales measuring 6.5 m (21 ft) at birth! Like the blue whale and other filter feeders, the fin whale sifts though ocean water using brush-like teeth called baleen to find krill or other small fish. These whales are known for their unique coloration: the right lower jaw is mostly white whereas the left lower jaw is mostly dark. Fin whales make the entire globe their home, living everywhere except completely frozen over areas in the Arctic Ocean. They were hunted almost to extinction up until the 1980s when protective measures were put into place to help save them. Recently, however, Iceland has decided to resume commercial hunting of fin whales, despite the fact that this species is considered endangered.

Morze Korteza to miejsce nurkowe owiane światową sławą... Jacques Cousteau nazwał je „akwarium świata”, ponieważ żyje w nim ponad 600 gatunków zwierząt począwszy od przedstawicieli świata makro: uroczych koników morskich, graników, żabnic, ślimaków nagoskrzelnych; po liczne kolonie większych przedstawicieli fauny: uchatek kalifornijskich, delfinów, stad rai, kaszalotów, finwali, rekinów wielorybich, rekinów oraz wielorybów pilotów! Sea of Cortez, to prawdziwy rarytas, który otwiera się na safari przez zaledwie 3 miesiące w roku. Do tego mamy bardzo dużą szansę na samotny rejs, gdzie oprócz naszej łodzi na tafli wody nie dostrzeżemy innych jednostek nurkowych! 🙂Rezerwacje robimy z 1.5 rocznym wyprzedzeniem ponieważ chętnych na safari nie brakuje!😉 Zostało nam jeszcze kilka miejsc na safari nurkowe w terminie 06-17.08.2020!! Jeśli chcielibyście "zasmakować" naprawdę spektakulaaaaarnych nurkowań - dołączcie do naszej grupy 😉 . . .

We had an AMAZING day out in the bay this morning! The trip started off with a few hundred Common Dolphin, playing and bow-riding the boat🐬 We then headed along the Redondo Canyon and spotted tall blows in the distance. These turned out to be 2 Fin Whales circling and lunge-feeding on some surface krill! The Fin Whales stayed at the surface much longer than they usually do so our passengers got some really good looks at them. And then the Blue Whales arrived!! More surface krill made for some excellent viewing of these giants - 2 large whales with one of them being the same one we saw yesterday! A truly epic day for all of us 🐳 For trip information and times visit rbwhales.com ! #whalewatching #finwhale #whales #redondobeach #bluewhale #boatrides
