Saturday, September 29, 2018

The weather has been less than ideal this week so we were itching to get back on the open ocean. Today, Two Roads Brewery Company hosted a trip to benefit the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation and it was a successful trip for sure. We found two minke whales and nine humpback whales offshore. More whales were around we just didn't have a chance to get to them all. Occasionally, some whales were active whether creating white water randomly at the surface, breaching in some fashion or just rolling over now and then.

We had pairs moving around, a group of four, and for a short time, five humpback whales associated with each other.

Some of the known whales we watched today included Daffodil, Decimal, Slingshot, Spoon, Spoon's 2018 calf, Tic Tac, Hornbill and Clamp.  A great day for a great cause!
