June 20-21, 2020

Happy Solstice, Happy Father's Day and perhaps the most exciting, happy opening weekend of the 2020 season! Gosh, it is great to be back on the water. On Saturday, we spent time with Dross the Humpback whale on both trips. This whale was scooting around all day, spending a bit of time under the surface but never ultimately moving far in a consistent direction.

In the afternoon we were even treated to two unexpected breaches! Not a bad first day.

With such an unexpected behavior, I barely captured the moment and instead got a better 'aftermath' shot! (above and below)
Sunday morning was not fruitful. We traveled almost 70 miles, round trip, searching for marine life. Unfortunately, we were unable to find whales. During our afternoon trip, we attempted to check out two minke whales. Our luck was only slowly improving considering the unpredictable movements of these individuals were not helping our whale watching activities. Our luck finally improved on our way home when we came across a fin whale!
