A Whale of a Time

Terry and Vicki Fahey of the Richmond-based Pearson 424 Tenacity have been cruising Mexico since last fall, and have enjoyed the abundunt wildlife, including the breaching whale above.

"We were about 15 miles out of Mazatlan on March 25 and the ocean was as smooth as glass. I saw this little guy breaching so we cut the engine and were entertained for a long time. I couldn’t believe our luck! I have some video of a mother and baby outside of Chacala — mostly fluke slapping — and we saw many mothers and baby humpbacks from Chacala to Mazatlan.

"The other sea life in the Sea of Cortez is outrageous! We’ve seen many different types of fish, a lot of giant manta rays and a variety of sting rays. In San Juanico and Aqua Verde, we saw a number of osprey nests and dolphins. They swam at the bow on our way back from snorkeling. The animals, sea life and clear water have made this part of our trip my favorite."
