Wednesday, September 24

Great day today with dozens of harbor porpoises, a pair of fin whales and a total of 8 humpback whales, 6 of which we spent time with!  It was the perfect fall day with a bit of breeze from the north but lots of sunshine.  The pair of fin whales were quite busy, staying under for 9-10 minutes and moving quite a bit while down below. We managed a few quick looks and then continued on to some more spouts in the distance.

Here we found 2 humpbacks, known as Sword and Springboard.   As we were with this pair, we saw more spouts just a bit further out.  This was a group of 4 humpbacks! Amazing!  These 4 included Valley, Sickle, Quote and Buzzard. It has been interesting to us to watch these whales move around the area and form pairs, trios and even quads over the past week. We still have so much to learn about these ocean giants.
