Wednesday, June 8

We had another school trip today and so off we went to the open ocean this morning. Our first stop of the day was Humpback whale #0050. We all got some great looks at this whale since the majority of the time this whale just circled around, remaining relatively close to the boat the whole time!

We ventured further offshore, passing by 2 Minke whales, and ended up coming across 3 Fin whales. These whales were spending a bit more time below the surface and moving around in sporadic movements making watching these whales a bit more challenging. It was still impressive however, having multiple of the second largest mammals on earth around us!

Many thanks to our group for always keeping a look out for whales and spending a nice day with massive wildlife!
