"Thar She Blows"
Your first indication of a whale's presence may be its spout or "blow" rising into the air above the water. The spout may be visible for miles on calm days, and a loud "whoosh" of exhalation may be heard up to 1/2 mile away. The spout consists mostly of condensation created as the whale's warm humid breath cools in the sea air, along with sea water blown into the air as the whale begins its exhalation just below the surface. Look for 3-5 blows as a rule, 30-50 seconds apart before the whale dives again. As a rule of thumb, a gray whale will blow once for each minute it has spent on its dive. Use your stopwatch to time these blows and predict when the whale is due to blow again.
