A Whale Tale (Well, Tail Actually)

Humpback whale fluke (tail) damage due to collision with a boat's propeller.

Unfortunately for many marine mammals, vessels running on the water may not see the animals near the surface, and will collide with them.  If you are on the water make sure to have many people viewing the water for any obstacles and wear polarized glasses to reduce the glare!  The mammals swimming around will greatly appreciate it, like this Humpback whale shown here with damage to its fluke.  We are all trying to use the ocean together!

This humpback appreciates us boating by at a very slow speed.
