Saturday, October 7

Where has the time gone? Today was our final trip for the 2017 whale watching season. Mother Nature decided to add a bit of a twist to the day as the majority of the trip was spent socked in fog. While fog tends to be our least favorite weather condition, we make the most of things we can't control, and slowed and searched for whale activity as much as possible offshore. We ultimately ended up finding 2 fin whales and 2 blue sharks during our trip.
Finding whales in the fog can be tricky but with the help of our passengers, we could keep track of this whale as it surfaced all around the boat!
One of our fin whales was fin-tastic as it began lunge-feeding at the surface rolling here and there all around us.

We would also like to take a moment and thank all of our passengers for making 2017 a successful season. We couldn't do it without you. We are passionate about what we do and try to share that passion and importance of the marine environment with all of you. Whether you were a first-timer, a visitor to the area, or many of our familiar friends, we thank you for your enthusiasm and look forward to seeing you all again in 2018!
