August 21, 2022

It was a cool Sunday out on the ocean this week. On the morning trip, we first came across a fin whale. This animal was taking shorter dives, so we were able to spend a good amount of time admiring its massive size. We noticed that some fog was rolling in, so we left this whale in search of other marine life before the fog reduced our visibility. We eventually found a pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins. We were so busy enjoying these animals that we hardly noticed the fog catching up to us! We headed back to the harbor and saw a minke whale on our way.

The afternoon trip started with a minke whale. While we were waiting for this individual to resurface, we spotted a second minke whale in the distance and headed over to take a look. After leaving the second minke, we continued on and eventually found a large pod of dolphins. There were about 120, including several calves! This pod was very active, darting around us in all directions, even coming close to the boat to the delight of everyone on board. It was a great way to wrap up our weekend!
