Sunday, September 13

Today Mother Nature decided to throw all sorts of weather conditions our way. Wind, waves, a little fog and even some midst was seen/felt during our time offshore today. Luckily, the whales are never too bothered by what is going on above the waterline as they need to breathe regardless. So our hardy passengers took to the weather and watching whales. We ended up seeing 3 Ocean sunfish, 2 Minke whales, 2 Humpback whales and Fin whale today. Our trip started with an Ocean sunfish before making our way out towards the whales as we even checked out a couple of others throughout our travels.
Plenty of Ocean sunfish at the surface today even without the sun shining down
We also watched a Fin whale circle around the area before making our way to a couple of other spouts being seen.

There was pair of Humpback whales close by. Owl and calf were slowly moving around the area.

We ended up getting some phenomenal looks at this pair of whales. Multiple times Owl and her calf turned straight in towards us allowing for all on board to experience just how large these medium-sized whales truly are!
