Sunday, September 2, 2018

Whales continue to be numerous and today was no exception! This morning we saw a pod of 100 Atlantic white-sided dolphins, a minke whale and eight humpback whales.

On both trips our humpback whales were in pairs, trios or larger groups of these baleen whales. They can be so impressive to watch when synchronizing their movements with others close by.

We saw known whales Fan, Solo, Ganesh's 2014 calf, Spoon, Spoon's 2018 calf and Jabiru.

This afternoon we saw two minke whales and 10 humpback whales. Again, whales close, spouts out in the distance and so many behaviors to witness. We saw breaching, flipper-slapping and feeding behaviors from some of our whales.
