Saturday, October 6, 2018

Today was a wonderful start to the final weekend of the season. Our trip began with a pod of 40 Atlantic white-sided dolphins. This group was just moseying around so we got some great looks at these toothed-whales before heading further offshore.
Our dolphins were in such a tight-knit group!

We then spent time with 4 of the 7 humpback whales in the area, saw a plethora of seals and even a minke whale surfaced occasionally.

Some whales were holding their breath longer than others but once at the surface, viewing these wild animals were spot on!

Bird life was equally as plentiful with northern gannets, shearwaters, and even a couple of northern fulmars! Our fingers are crossed our final trip will hold just as many special moments tomorrow!
