Lots of Humpbacks and Dolphins

Lots of Humpbacks and Dolphins

Captain Eric ran east, as has been our custom these past few weeks.  The day started off calm with overcast skies and ended up calm with sun.  At least 1,500 long beaked common dolphins were closely watched throughout the trip and pods were everywhere we went.  The first of 7 humpback whales was “Top Notch” who was quite friendly today and breached close to the boat.  A bit further to the east, Captain Eric located 6 more humpback #whales and there was evidence of some surface lunge feeding going on.  One whale swam directly under the boat.  Once again the Fall conditions were spectacular and the cetaceans were both abundant and exciting.
