Sunday, May 13

Happy Mother's Day to each of you today! It was a beautifully calm day with some beautiful marine mammals. We saw at least 4 different fin whales, a humpback whale, a few harbor porpoises and a couple harbor seals during our trip. The fin whales and humpback whale circled around, lunging through the water occasionally feeding at the surface. Of our fin whales, Bolshoi and #0813 were identified in the field thanks to their distinctive dorsal fins.

It pays to keep an eye on the water when you are at the beach. You never know if maybe a whale is passing by. This fin whale was so close to land!
Our humpback whale was one that has been sighted early in our seasons for the past few years. It was #0050! Such a great day to enjoy wildlife.

The ocean couldn't be more calm!
We are currently whale watching only on the weekends so see you next week!
