Tales of the humpback whale tails.


Tale of the tails.

We closely watched at least 6 humpback whales today, with another 7 or 8 in the immediate area. It was the “day of the tails” today. All the humpacks were fluking up, and many had very short down times so we got to see their tail a lot. Add to this tail fluking another humpback that did a series of dramatic tail throws, and another 15 minutes of tail lobbing, I decided this was the “day of the tails”.

There was a light breeze with some tiny white caps on the water today but it was sunny and we had very blue water again. Although I saw 2 Minkes during the trip today myself, I don’t think anyone else saw them. We did have at least 550 common dolphins…probably more….but who can count these rascals?

There is a trip scheduled tomorrow for Veterans Day….10a – 230pm…call ahead for reservations.

I’ll post up the rest of today’s tail shots sometime tomorrow.

Hope to see you on board soon. Tell ’em Bob sent you.
