So much to see today in such a small area! Both trips had humpback whales, minke whales, seals, dolphins and ocean sunfish. This afternoon we had the added bonus of a pair if awesome fin whales and some harbor porpoises too!   The humpback whales were a little sleepy. Likely they had been feeding at night and were taking the day to relax before another bout of feeding! These whales eat 2000-4000 pounds of fish every day!  They certainly deserve a rest after that!  I’m reminded of how I feel after Thanksgiving dinner- where’s the couch??  The birds were impressive as well today. Lots of petrels, shearwaters and gannets.  Can’t wait to see what is out there tomorrow!
