Mario Graniel submitted these great pictures of a 38-40 foot Humpback Whale that he spotted while on a fishing trip last week at the Turneffe Atoll. Truly a rare sighting!

Cool story. That whale will remain in Belize throughou the Winter. Would be nice if excursions could be organized for schools to appreciate this once in a lifetime experience.
How often do whales swim in Belize waters?
lets hold off on the tours to disturb the whales....... they have enough troubles every where else in the world from tour boats ....lets for once... respect the sea creatures.....when they visit.....
we do enough to destroy our wildlife in the sea as it is...in belize......b/c bz's polititions have sold out the reef
leave the fish alone..
.the tourists find no peace in san pedro these days......
let the visiting whales, at least ,find some....!!
[thanks mario.....next time out take a video cam.....then show the video in the schools]
