Friday, June 27

What a difference a day makes! The sloppy seas of yesterday were quick to settle down today.   Our morning trip was graced by several minke whales, some more cooperative than others.  And thanks to a report from a fishing boat offshore, we spent time with Comet, one of our favorite fin whales!

During the afternoon trip, we did a bit of searching in different locations and ended up with fin whale #0902  (seen yesterday) as well as Comet again! But Comet wasn't anywhere near where she was in the morning. She had traveled 14 miles in less than 5 hours! Speedy whale!

 Between our awesome fin whale sightings, we spotted a few minke whales as well as this added bonus- a basking shark!

Excellent trips today! Thanks to all who joined us for the adventure!
