BAHAMAS ~ Whale Watching ~

... Fantastic postcard showing the "gentle giants of the ocean" ... to see one of the most majestic and extraordinary animals on earth in the wild must be an awesome experience... and swimming with them must be unforgettable... humpbacks are true “acrobats of the sea” and will give viewers an impressive show of jumps out of the water (known as breaching) and tail and flipper slaps... whale and dolphin watching has become a popular eco-tourism activity worldwide in recent years...Thanks a lot Roy!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

From backside postcard:
"A rare transcendent experience await visitors to the southern Isles of the Bahamas. Whales, the world's largest mammals, gently glide through serene blue seas in mysterious beauty."

The southern part of the Bahamas island chain has several more islands, which are less known, sparsely populated and undeveloped from a tourism perspective.  These islands are will San Salvador, Long Island, the Exumas, Crooked and Acklins Islands, Inagua and Mayaguana.

The whales migrate annually from their summer feeding grounds in the North Atlantic to their winter playgrounds in the Caribbean, where they spend approximately three months to find a partner and mate or give birth to a calf conceived the previous year.
