Dear Sir!

I am a Swedisk science journalist, working for the Swedish Radio, and I
have one question: Where in the world can I find/see bluewhales?

Looking forward to hear from you!

Sincerly yours

Probably the most likely place to view blue whales would be off the coast of
Mexico during the winter months. I am not familiar with the best ports, or
the chances of seeing one at any given time, but they are often seen as far
north as the Santa Barbara Channel off Los Angeles, California. Otherwise,
there are blue whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, off Quebec, Canada, in
the summer months. Blues are also to be found in the Antarctic Ocean during
the southern summer. A good source for more exact information would be
Michael Williamson, at williams@www1.wheelock.edu. Good luck.
