A WHALE OF A TAIL
The Humpback Whale in Newfoundland

VIEWER COMMENTS

"I am writing to express how pleased I was with the show you recently aired (Whale of a Tail) .... The show highlighted Newfoundland in an informative way and was beautifully filmed."
- Sandra C. Kelly, Minister of Tourism, Gov't of NF

The content and presentations and photography were all superb. This piece will serve as excellent promotion for Newfoundland for years to come. You have shown it in a glorious light. I congratulate your efforts."
- Ella Heneghan, Wildland Tours, St. John's, NF

Whale watching can be done from tour boats (above), from the beach at St. Vincent's (top left) as the whales lunge feed just meters off shore, or from the cliffs above Cape St. Mary's light (below ).

Humpbacks, like the one above, showing the huge nostrils on the back of his neck, just behind the pimples on his snout, are shown performing a wide variety of behaviours, including logging (hanging about like a .... above), lunge feeding (top left), breaching (above left), flippering (below left) and blowing foul smelling vapour. 

"My dear People. Please accept my Admiration and Praise on your film on whales.!"
- Mildred Carter, Petty Harbour, NF
