Saturday, August 27

Variety was the name of the game today!!  On both trips we spotted fin whales, minke whales, Atlantic white sided dolphins, harbor porpoises, harbor seals and a gray seal!  The bird life included Northern Gannets, Great Shearwaters and even some phalaropes! The seas were pretty smooth allowing us to see clearly into the water to get amazing looks at the curious dolphins, and could even see the minke “mittens”  (white flipper patches) as the minkes cruised by!  It’s so great to see the area so full of life!
