June 20-21

June 20-21
Yesterday’s trip started off foggy but cleared up a few miles offshore. We passed by a harbor seal close to the harbor and headed out to find 4 minke whales and a huge fin whale! Our hearty passengers weathered the rain like real troopers.

 Today, we had a couple brief sprinkles from the rain gods, and after a lot of searching, found a humpback whale, #0050 on the move.

 He traveled 2 miles in the 30 minutes we followed him! Ok, granted, 4 mph seems slow to us, but for a humpback whale, that’s a pretty good cruising speed! I wonder where he is heading??
