His Story

Tear’s fluke

Tear is easy to identify because most of his fluke is white and there are several scars quite obvious at a distance.  There are two parallel lines near the top of the left part.  Tear’s fluke also is quite droopy.

Finally, Tear has a mark in the center of his fluke that looks like a teardrop.

If you adopted Tear from any of the Adopt A Whale Programs in the US or UK, you can meet her!

We selected the very best clips of Tear from 17,096 trips to the feeding grounds where this whale can be sighted from April thru October.

You will be delighted to spend 20 minutes with Tear feeding with an open mouth lunge.  When Tear lunged right by the boat, it was as if we were part of a Discovery Channel program!  Tear is also breaching and slamming her fluke on the water.
