Minke whales steal the show again.

Captain Mat reports from the Condor Express that the excursion today ran the Channel in search of whales. Hot spots were checked for the big guys. In the process, over 3,500 common dolphins were seen today. This strategy paid off with looks at 5 fabulous Minke whales. As we saw yesterday, these normally shy whales were again friendly and easy to watch. What a great thing for whale lovers, having this elusive creature “warming up” to us cetacean lovers.

Best regards Bob Perry Condor Express
