Swimming with Whales
People may have a misconception that whales are a type of fish. In fact, whales are mammals which live in the ocean. Despite looking bulky, with their streamlined bodies and strong tails, whales can travel as fast as sharks. When whales reach the water surface, they will expel air forcefully through their blowholes to breathe and result in spouts. Besides, they will also spyhop and breach, etc. People are always amazed by all these surfacing behaviors during whale watching. Although there are no whales living in Hong Kong waters, we can find another kind of whales. They are the well-known Chinese white dolphins. Connect to the MMIS to find out more.
