Wednesday, October 4
Today was a bit more typical as far as fall weather goes. We had been getting a little spoiled by the calm conditions over the past week. This morning the wind was blowing from the SW, so the further offshore we went, the choppier the seas were. The first half of the trip showed us what the ocean was all about, but soon after reaching the whales, the wind died out and the seas calmed very nicely. We found two groups of humpback whales- a trio and a pair, along with an elusive minke whale and two harbor seals (and a grey seal in the harbor!) I hope the ocean and whales both cooperate for our last couple trips of the 2017 season!
