How to use blue whale in a sentence?

  1. Jeremy Goldbogen:

    First we have to find a blue whale, which can be very difficult because these animals range across vast swaths of the open ocean. By combining many years of field experience and some luck, we position a small, rigid-hulled, inflatable boat on the whale's left side, we then have to deploy the tag using a six-meter (20-foot) long carbon-fiber pole. As the whale surfaces to breathe, we tag the whale in a location that we think is closest to the heart: just behind the whale's left flipper.

  2. Attila Hevesi:

    The two are not on the same page, it is like a dolphin versus a blue whale. But maybe even a dolphin is an exaggeration.

  3. Patrick Dykstra:

    We also don’t settle for merelyseeing a blue whale, or even seeing one underwater, we are always seeking that ‘take your breath away’ life changing up close encounter that you will remember for the rest of your life.
