July 16-17, 2022

Saturday morning we were first treated with looks at a fin whale - one of the second largest whales on earth! Always impressive to come across.

We then spent time with humpback whales Clamp, Diablo, and Dyad.

The same humpback whales were around in the afternoon, in addition to a handful of pleasure boats. Between the whales and the small vessels, we had to slowly maneuver (for the whale's safety sake!) and got some great looks.

On Sunday, we ventured back offshore to where the whales were on Saturday. Whales can, and do, move so looking for them in recent locations is always a good place to start. We ended up spending time with five humpback whales. Clamp, Dyad, Diablo, Tripod and Valley were darting all around, filtering and creating bubble clouds along the way. Even a grey seal was trying to take advantage of the plentiful food.

In the afternoon, as we headed towards Jeffreys Ledge, we found a small pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins.

What a special treat! The humpback whales were also still around to round out another successful day.
