I want to document a right whale calving !!! It is a phrase that said my friend and colleague Luis Pettitte, for almost a decade and a half, many, many times. I must admit that I constantly dislocated his dream and said, but that's very difficult, almost impossible. Nobody in the world documented whale childbirth. Why you do not ask anything more likely ... But the insistence and perseverance of Luis, old filmmaker who already has spent 20 years navigating the waters of the Golfo Nuevo in the whale watching. He destroyed force statistics, this terrible and constant intervention mine.
On July 2, 2012, it was the day the stars, marked the meeting. A normal tour of Southern Spirit, a typical whale watching tour. A few lucky tourists, Justine Guevara at the helm of the boat, Juan Pablo Martorel as whaling guide and Luis Pettitte, in charge of taking pictures of tourists and marine happenings. No one better than Luis himself to relate the experience of this story:
"Eight people worldwide were privileged. Surprise, joy, euphoria, adrenaline, complete happiness that we all share this unique moment, being the first humans to witness a secret the nature kept to this day. A southern right whale calving.Well, this is a story that could not be left out of the APP Valdes Peninsula. Here is recorded a fact of which I am proud to tell in my handful of friends, that became through hope and perseverance, a dream come true.
