Sunday, August 5, 2018

This morning our trip started off Salisbury, Massachusetts. A humpback whale was swimming along the coast which at times was VERY close to land! After a few looks we went further offshore and hope the whale did the same too!

We also saw six minke whales, four fin whales (including a pair) and Pinball the humpback whale.

This afternoon we started the trip with a pod of 50-60 Atlantic white-sided dolphins. This pod was probably busy feeding, staying very close to each other and constantly zipping in every which direction.

After a lot of searching we ended up wrapping up the trip with two minke whales and a few seals.
