Biscay, 1-4 September 2010, Pt 4 Cuvier's Beaked Whale

The same shot as above with the fluke print (water flattned by the tail flukes) included

(W is for Weedon)

This male (judging by the teeth and scratches) gave us just about the best possible view of a CBW, coming right by the starboard bow. Wonderful!
For me, this was the highlight of a wonderful trip guiding for great people travelling with the Company of Whales. Some of us missed this beastie, but we did see a further 18 Cuvier's Beaked Whales, including a party of five, so there were plenty of other opportunities to enjoy this fantastic whale species.
