Beaked Whale

Baird's Beaked Whales

Very rarely seen around the world since these beaked species typically inhabit very deep water and can hold their breath for a long time, Baird's and Cuvier's beaked whales can both be spotted offshore here but most likely will be found past Catalina Island where water depths are 4,000 feet or more. There are several different types of beaked whales and some can dive to depths of 10,000 feet. Featured in these photos are Baird's beaked whales and is the only known aerial footage of them.
