Sunday, September 24

Finally, after a week of waiting for the weather to break, we got back out on the water today. Considering our last whale watch was spent searching for life in thick fog today was a fantastic change in scenery. Our final numbers for the day included 13 humpback whales, 4 minke whales and 6 harbor seals. Most of our humpback whale sightings were trios and almost all were napping.

Thanks to the most beautifully calm seas we got some incredible looks at so many of our sightings.
The water was so calm you could see this whale's entire flipper below the surface!

Because we had so many relaxed whales getting tail shots were few and far between but we do have a few whales IDed. Some of the whales sighted today included Shuffleboard, Churn, Echo, A-plus, Daffodil, Reaper and Owl and her calf.
