What is that directly west of the ship? Whales maybe?

You might be right. I see 2 or 3 somethings that are long and in the water.

I measured them in Google Earth Plus, and they're around 90 to 100 feet each. This is a length that's not unheard of for blue whales, but I have no idea if blues ever frequent this area or if they would be swimming in a pod of 3. In addition, I think that given the clarity and depth of the water and brigtness of the ocean bottom in this area, we would be able to more clearly see the outline of the whales' bodies.

If I had to bet money, I would say they are the trails of 3 personal watercraft.

Are you talking about this (obviously jetskis) or this (unknown), or what?

Ted, it looks like your second "this" is sunken boat hulls, possibly put there to form an artificial reef attracting sea life and giving divers something to explore.
