If that’s a Blue Whale, (which I think it is) that is an incredibly rare sighting. A plane is pretty much the only way you’ll ever see one.

A few of the social media users questioned the legitimacy of the photos, to which the over night star flyer replied to saying that she was flying over Santa Barbara channel in a puddle jumper plane.
These reactions are a bit over-whale-ming (I had to 🥲), but I have a few notes!
• I was flying over the Santa Barbara channel
• I was in a puddle jumper much lower than commercial flights (with one other person+distance+masks!)
• pretty sure it’s a grey whale https://t.co/zQ9teS5zG5
