Thursday, June 22

Today it one fin whale after another! This morning we took a great group of students out from Indian River. We ended up finding 5 fin whales and 6 minke whales.
First fin whale of the day: #9724
Some of our morning whales were being a bit elusive but when you have (literally) a boatload of enthusiastic eagle-eyed kiddos we had no problem relocating anything we came across!

This afternoon we started our sightings with a pair of fin whales just beyond the Isles of Shoals!

The sightings kept coming after that. More and more fin whales, 9 in total(!) and even a couple humpback whales; thanks Captain Brad.

Nature certainly has some magical moments
Our humpback whale sightings included a quick distant look at Hornbill while we watched Gondolier circle around creating a few bubble clouds.
