It slides out of sight asan enormous tail lifts and falls. As it does, another hump rises beside it and begins thesame dance. Several people cheer from the pontoon boat. Some raise their cameras,while others lift binoculars to get a closer view. These whale watchers are getting whatthey hoped for—a view of gray whales migrating south.For thousands of years, whales have fascinated humans. However, until recent times,the average person did not have the chance to see these amazing creatures up close.The first opportunity arose in San Diego, California. There, in 1950, the Cabrillo NationalMonument was declared a public place to watch whales. Soon after, the first whalewatching boats sailed from San Diego harbors. For 1, people could ride out into theocean in hopes of seeing whales close-up.The whale-watching boats became very popular. Soon similar boat trips wereavailable from other seaports. Today millions of people around the world go whalewatching every year.Interestingly, some whales are just as curious about humans as humans are aboutthem. They may swim near a boat for hours, watching the passengers. Of course, this isa very exciting experience for those on board!“I was looking through the side of a glass-bottomed whale boat,” says one whalewatcher. “Suddenly, a blue whale was right next to me! Its eye looked straight at me asit swam by. Its body seemed to keep going and going. It was the most amazingexperience of my life!”At up to 100 feet long, it is no wonder that the blue whale’s body kept going. The bluewhale is the largest mammal ever on Earth. Its body is the size of a passenger jet. Itstongue can weigh as much as an elephant.Depending on where a person whale watches, different types of whales may be seen.From the West Coast, people may see gray whales, blue whales, minke whales, finwhales, or killer whales. East Coast whales include humpbacks, finbacks, and minkes.On both coasts, dolphins are a common sight.
