So many whales continue to spend time offshore! This morning we saw 11 humpback whales, a minke whale, multiple seals and a pod of 150 Atlantic white-sided dolphins. No matter what was at the surface we got spectacular looks at so much wildlife.

Shhh, this seal is sleeping
This harbor seal woke up eventually!
The dolphins were milling around, the humpback whales were in small groups, it was so fantastic.

This afternoon the phenomenal sightings continued. We started with an ocean sunfish before seeing 11 humpback whales, more seals and a large pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins we passed during our travels home.

Some of the whales identified this afternoon included Patches, Spoon, her calf, Jabiru and Solo.

The whales have been pretty incredible recently so we can only hope sightings continue even if in a fraction of the numerous sightings we have experienced!
