Playing with Juvenile Whales

Juvenile Sperm Whales having not yet met sexual maturity are especially likely to be sociable, playful and inquisitive with human beings during whale watching expeditions. The young Whales will often rise to the surface of the water to circle the boat and feed their curiosity through observing their surroundings, including the humans that now inhabit their space. These large majestic creatures have adapted to navigate through the water through a variety of intricate adaptations, one of which is their blow hole through which they can draw breath in and out of their lungs in a matter of seconds while holding their breath for up to an hour.
