Spending a summer in the company of whales off the coast of Patagonia is a 1__________ in a lifetime opportunity. We spent at least twelve hours on the boat every day and learned a great 2_____ about the whales behavior. It seemed that our interest 3_______ reciprocated!
To encourage the whales to approach the boat we simply had to move a short distance from the coast, switch 4_______ the engines and wait. Younger whales who attempted to come closer were pushed 5_________ by their mothers, but older ones 6__________ allowed to play nearby. Some of these even came close enough for 7_____ to touch them.
On some occasions the sea seemed to be full of whales jumping 8______ of the water but at other times we saw 9________ any at all. Sometimes we could go for several days and 10______ see a single whale.
Later, however, we adopted a pattern. 11_________ day we had come upon a whale and 12_____ baby and we decided to keep visiting the pair at the same time every day. At 13_____ the mother would not let the baby approach us but, as time 14_______by, she allowed him to come closer and closer to the boat. It was a truly amazing experience to be rewarded 15_______ such trust at the end of our six weeks.
