Saw a lone hammerhead shark swimming alongside the Allure while docked at Port Everglades at the end of this past August. See attached (bad) photo.

 

Share your photos of any wild marine life while your Royal Caribbean ship was docked or at sea. (Swim excursions with the dolphins or sting rays don't count!)

That’s amazing!!! I saw about 50 dolphins jumping up next to Mariner in Gulf of Aden once. No photos or video though, but truly memorable experience.

We've seen dolphins on most of our cruises when departing Galveston.  Sorry, no pic.

I've also seen a hammerhead swimming next to the ship at Port Everglades... he was too quick for me though, no pic.  Looking forward to more of y'alls photos!

I saw a humpback whale when SCUBA diving in Barbados during a port stop while on a Serenade OTS cruise in Feb.2007. It passed directly overhead our dive group as you can see our group's exhaust air bubbles in the first shot below. Luckily I had an underwater dive camera.

In Alaska, in more than one port, but particularly in Icy Strait Point, you will often see HUGE groups of  whales bubble-feeding right next to or behind the ship.

Didn't get pictures but we saw several small sharks and rays while wading in the water at Coco Cay.

I've seen flying fish, a couple of large fish, dolphins and a sea turtle.  The turtle was while we were docked in PC.  Dolphins in PC and Charleston (lots of them there).  Flying fish when we did a Mexican Riviera cruise and one large fish as we were leaving St. Kitts.  Most were sighted from a high deck so hard to photograph.

Carol, LOVED this!

Don't know why the other poster got their bloomers in a twist over a kiddie song.

The first is a bald eagle with his/her nest in Hoonah and the second is orca whales swimming next to the ship leaving ISP.  Both on our Alaska cruise this summer on the Radiance.

I am suspecting that the poster was being a bit sarcastic. Of course, once you hear that song you can’t get it out of your brain. I will probably be singing it all day long today.

Correct. I was just kidding.

 

And yes, the song will be stuck in my head for hours.😄
