Wednesday August 30, 2017

Today we had a group of hearty passengers who braved the waves and were rewarded with great looks at a total of six humpback whales!   We also saw a blue shark and a harbor seal during our trip.  The first group of four humpback whales included Spoon and Jabiru along with two friends who have not yet been identified.  These whales were very relaxed and spending a good deal of time at the surface. The second group we came upon was a pair of humpback whales.  We are fairly sure that one of the pair was Hornbill, but the whale did not lift its flukes to confirm this.  This pair was also very relaxed.  In addition to all the whales we also saw many great shearwaters and gulls and a few gannets.  Here are my favorite pictures from today's trip.
