July 6-8, 2020

On Monday morning we found Pinball the humpback whale. She was constantly darting around and spending a good amount of time under the water but we eventually got some great looks at her.
On our journey offshore in the afternoon we crossed paths with a small pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins. These toothed whales were darting back and forth at a quick-action pace!

Offshore we spent some time with Pinball and even checked out a minke whale circling around.

Tuesday morning we had a crisp horizon but that was likely due to the increasing winds and seas we were experiencing. We saw minke whales, Pinball the humpback whale, a small pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins and a newcomer for the season: Ravine the humpback whale!

We stayed tied to the dock Tuesday afternoon due to the high winds and waves. Mother Nature's offshore conditions also kept us on land on Wednesday.
