This afternoon we were off to check out Jeffreys Ledge once again. On our travels out we came across a few Fin whales scattered in all directions around the boat but soon saw signs of other whale activity. Constant splashing was out in the distance. Knowing dolphins can disappear soon after they appear if gone unwatched, we decided to make our way in their direction before they swam off. This group was creating quite the ruckus, zipping and zagging in all directions, definitely chasing down food! This particular group gave our passengers once again the extra treat of seeing such a quick-moving species.

Before heading for home we also went and checked out the other Humpback whale swimming around on its own. Past the couple Minke whales, and 2 other Fin whales in the area, we made our way to Crystal still going strong. A nice way to wrap up the day for just before we left we also got a quick look as Crystal slapped its tail on the water, creating all sorts of saltwater to burst into the sky.
