Thursday, August 24

Marine life continued to be present on both of our trips today. This morning we saw 7 minke whales, pods of 100, 150 and 50 Atlantic white-sided dolphins, 10 harbor seals and an ocean sunfish.
First sighting of whales for the day, Atlantic white-sided dolphins!

Ocean sunfish
The minke whales were here and there and we even had one briefly swim circles around us; one mammal being curious about another.

Such calm seas to enjoy watching whales!

This afternoon we started the trip with a group of 50-60 Atlantic white-sided dolphins before finding 3 minke whales, 4 fin whales, 3 harbor seals and a super brief look at a humpback whale.

One of our fin whales was a very familiar whale. Dingle the fin whale surprised us by surfacing nearby! Another day of surprises here and there and fun finds all around.
