Whale Watching

It was a chilly day for June, but I wasn’t surprised because it was Alaska. My family and I were waiting to get on a boat to go whale watching. I was a little tired of boats because I had just gotten off a cruise. My sister and I were arguing like usual. Finally, we were allowed to get on the boat. It wasn’t that big of a boat like I thought it would be, but it was pretty big on the inside. The boat’s name was the St. Philip’s. It looked pretty weathered because it was tied to a dock. When we got on the boat I recognized two girls from my ship.

A voice came on over an intercom instructing us what do you say if we found a whale. I didn’t understand the system they used so I hoped that it wasn’t important. After the boat left the dock I got a pair of binoculars to see if I could find a whale. A few minutes later someone shouted
“Look a whale!”
Everyone turned to see but I missed it. Then, I saw one and my dad saw it too.
“Wow, that’s pretty cool!”
My dad said.
My dad and I went to the top of the boat to look for more Whales. When we got to the second floor, it was really windy and I had to hold onto my hat to keep it from flying away. Then, we saw a mother and its calf playing tag. We saw seven more Humpback whales and then the boat went back to the dock. When we got off the boat I was glad to be on solid ground. I had just experienced one of the most exciting moments in my life.
