Tornado the Humpback Whale
Tornado was born in 1988 to a whale named Fringe. She was named for the white oval on the right half of her fluke. The picture (left) below shows Fringe on the left and Tornado beside her as a calf in 1988.
Tornado is famous for coming up to the boats. It isn’t often that a whale looks up at people with its eye wide open, but Tornado did. You can see this on the whale watch trip described at the bottom of this page.

If you adopted Tornado from any of the Adopt A Whale Programs in the US or UK, you can meet her!
We selected the very best clips of Tornado from 17,096 trips to the feeding grounds where this whale can be sighted from April thru October.
You will be delighted to spend 21 minutes watching Tornado. One day we saw a humpback in the distance and approached slowly to find Tornado. We were rewarded with an incredible close approach. Tornado showed great interest in the boat by twisting and turning in every way to get a good look at us. You will see her eye, watch her stand on her head, thrill to a great spyhop and look her right in the face.
