Whales are only visible once Fishing is researched. Whales spawn on ocean tiles only. However, Whales may occasionally spawn on shallow water tiles due to forced-spawning (see the end of this page), although this is quite rare.
- Originally, there would be a cost associated with hunting a whale before receiving the 10-star reward. This cost increased with each city in a tribe's empire; eventually, the cost of hunting whales could be greater than the reward. The cost for hunting whales was removed in a later update, and hunting each whale now has no cost associated with it.
- Midjiwan, the game developer, condemns hunting actual whales.
