The weather kept us on solid ground on Saturday so heading offshore Sunday morning provided that much more anticipation of what and where we would find whales. There was initially plenty of life to look at, but all of the wrong marine variety. Fish, jellyfish, and more fish!
Multiple ocean sunfish were sighted, at least 10 blue sharks were seen, and so many jellyfish subsurface! So we continued searching and ultimately came into an area where there were numerous humpback whales.
Individuals of the morning included Quote, Quill, Owl, Gunslinger, Valley, and Sword.

We headed back to the same area in the afternoon and spent time with eight humpback whales, with even more scattered around in the distance! We even had a group of five whales! Individuals for the afternoon were Sword, Valley, Jawa, Gunslinger, Ravine, Shuffleboard, and Owl.
