|First Minke whale of the day enjoyed surfacing right next to the pulpit!|

|Check out the dorsal fins of all these Minke whale photographs and you can see they all have their own uniquely shaped fins and thus different individuals!|
This afternoon we got reports of other whale activity in areas different from where we had travelled to during our morning trip. With the wind not extremely noticeable after leaving the harbor we decided to give it a go and do some searching. Our luck paid off as we were able to find two species of whales offshore. We were able to check out a Fin whale before heading over to an old friend. Our Fin whale, even though it swam on through the area, was a whale we were able to identify based on its dorsal fin shape. Fin whale #0813 was in the area! This is the first time we have seen this whale this season so we were thrilled to get a chance to see it swim on by.
