Thursday, July 14

We only had a morning trip today as the winds began to pick up and churn up an already wavy ocean. No worries for the whales however. Regardless of the ocean conditions whales still need to surface for breaths of air. And there was no shortage of whales around today. We started the trip with 2 Fin whales swimming with each other. A quick look at one of these whales lead us to realize it was Dingle spending time with another massive Fin whale.

We were able to get some great looks at two of the second largest whales on Earth before moving on to other whale spouts we were seeing. There were two Humpback whales nearby.

And guess who they were? Our 'resident' whales recently. Humpback whales #0050 and Quill are still moseying around.

While watching these whales we also had a few Minke whales pop up during our time offshore today.
