Tuesday, August 29

Today we spent time with some very relaxed whales. Almost all of our sightings were resting at the surface. In total, we saw 6 humpback whales, a minke whale and even a couple of grey seals. Our trip started with a group of 4 humpback whales mostly napping: Spoon, Jabiru, Pinball and Gunslinger.

Because these whales remained at the surface for such long periods of times we got some phenomenal looks at this group.

During the time we spent with these wild beings there were a few moments of extra activity as Spoon flipper slapped and Pinball smacked her tail at the surface creating quite the whitewater nearby.
Spoon's flipper sky high!

Next we checked out Patches the humpback whale slowly moving around on its own.

We also saw a few grey seals pop up here and there and even a minke whale on our way home. A great day with some incredible mammals.
