I found this something in a bay at the saint george islands. could it be a whale? just because the looks of it. Certainly it would be plausible if it is a boat, but it looks strange. and it has a shape like it would be some kind of whale.
What do you think?

Looks like a blue whale to me! and at 31m long, thats VERY plausable..

its unlikely its a boat as there's no wake :)

Yeah, I guess that's a whale.

Could be a small boat or a jetski as well, the outline of the "whale" would then be the wake.

I think it's no whale, because if you see the wave formation from south east to the current position (approx. 400m long ), you see that the waves roll to the coast and to the open sea and so that they resulted from high speeds.
It seems to be a jetski or a speed boat (with a length of approx. 3.30 m)witch goes from south east to north west (paralell to the coast) and turnes.
The wave formation is approx. 400m long and no whale is so fast to swim to north west and turn around to south east!!!
