August 14-15, 2023

On Monday morning's trip, we ventured to where we've been having luck with whale sightings. Conditions were beautiful but whale sightings were sparse. We ended up spending time with Satula the humpback whale as this whale darted here and there around Jeffreys Ledge.

Just before returning to the harbor, we checked out an ocean sunfish.

Lo and behold, another ocean sunfish was the first thing we stopped on during our afternoon trip on Monday!

Back out on Jeffreys Ledge, we spent time looking at humpback whales Satula and Pinball and her 2023 calf, and at least three minke whales scooting around the area. With the beautiful sea conditions continuing in the afternoon, witnessing these wild animals are always impressive.

Trips on Tuesday have been canceled due to weather so searching for sightings will have to wait for another day.
