Sunday, October 7, 2018


How time flies. Today was our final trip for the 2018 season. Our sightings included two minke whales, checking out two of the four humpback whales in the area, seeing 6-8 harbor seals, getting a brief look at a blue shark and spending time with a pod of 8-10 Atlantic white-sided dolphins. Such a variety of marine life to enjoy wrapping up another year.

It may be the last trip of the season but we have never seen this before... a wood duck swimming around offshore!?!?!?
Did you know we had a 100% success rate of whale sightings this season? We go on A LOT of trips and aim to strive for a perfect season. While we know there were a few trips we had to turn around early for, during all of our full trips we saw whales, a feat that can be tough to accomplish. So thank you whales for providing so many spectacular memories this season. We must equally thank all of our passengers for scanning the horizon, helping spot whales and experiencing these magnificent wild mammals. We are so thankful for those of you that return year after year, sharing your enthusiasm with other surrounding passengers. To the first-timers and the awe in your eyes witnessing these creatures closeup. To those that appreciate all that the world holds and the natural beauty surrounding us. To the young and "not so young" and all those in between thank you for joining us this year. We appreciate you choosing us and hope to see you all again in the future.
The clouds looked liked waves today!
