Bryde's whales are being seen again in the Gulf of Thailand, thanks to the abundance of food resources, which has drawn the attention of tourists.

Boats sailed into the sea to take visitors to the spot from where they can get a glimpse of the giant marine mammal, surfacing to eat fish.The whales use their tails to paddle small fish towards their head so that they can easily swallow them.The whale is usually visible from September to the end of the year, since tonnes of anchovies come to the area.Visitors can take the boats at Samut Sakhon and Phetchaburi provinces to see a family of whales or a lonely whale searching for food in the gulf.
