White Humpback whale

The sighting of a rare white Humpback whale in Hinlopen Strait in August is getting big on various media around the world. The lucky photos that Dan Fisher, mate and engineer on board SV Antigua, managed to get, have by now been sold through agencies, appeared on several websites and made it onto north American television.

Apart from the white Humpback whale seen this summer in Spitsbergen, only two more animals of this rare kind are known so far, an adult and a calf, both seen off Queensland, Australia.
