July 19, 2019

July 19, the morning trip found some minke whales and a big fin whale! After much more searching, we came upon 3 pods of harbor porpoises! The seas were getting choppy which would normally make watching speedy porpoises nearly impossible, but we managed to get some great looks at this small pod as it swam across our bow several times!

The afternoon trip took us to the same area as the morning trip, but this time we found 2 humpback whales bubble-feeding! A fin whale also passed through the area. Patches (the whale on our brochure cover) and Zorro were both feeding at the surface. Patches blew big clouds of bubbles and came charging through them at the surface! At one point, he even caught an unsuspecting herring gull but quickly released it.
