Giant fin whale stops (boat) traffic


Fin whales are the second largest baleen whale and are seen throughout the year off the coast of Orange County, Calif., and a big attraction for passengers of Captain Dave's Dolphin and Whale Safari.

A recent outing sent his Catalina Express veering off course to let its passengers have a closer look as well.

A close encounter caught on video shows what the safari crew calls the whale's show "mugging." or circling very closely.
