Here is what we watched closely today:
2 Blue Whales 600 Common Dolphins
This was a 1pm departure due to a morning research and educational charter. As fate would have it, the seas did kick up a bit in the late afternoon making whale-spotting a challenge for sure. But nonetheless Captain Dave Beezer's sharp eyes located a pair of Blue Whales despite the high seas and winds. There is nothing like seeing the world's largest living creature in its element, busting through the on-coming breakers with the wind whipping the spray off the nose of the beast and the spout flying all over. Wow.
The rest of the week we are back on a normal 10am departure schedule and the seas should be far more favorable for people with weak stomachs and/or land lubbers.
We have had quite a few days with dense populations on the shelf break. Who knows what the future may bring. Suggestion: sign up now and get in on all the action while it lasts.
