Caption

Whale tourism. Grey whale (Eschrichtius robustus) spyhopping in front of a tourist boat. The term spyhopping refers to a whale pushing itself vertically out of the water to look around. This whale is found in coastal waters, migrating with the seasons from Arctic waters to tropical equatorial waters. It can grow up to 15 metres in length and weigh 16 tonnes. Photographed in the Gulf of California, a body of water between the Mexican mainland and Baja California.
