Thousands of dolphins and a humpback, too.

“What a difference a day makes.” The fog left and so did the whales. Skies had a high, gray stratus layer and there was no wind. Captain Devin and the crew headed southeast to the hot zone we’ve been finding the last few days. Unfortunately, it is possible the whales went west. All was not lost! Sightings today included: 1 humpback whale and 3000 long-beaked common dolphins.

After a few scattered, small pods of dolphins to the east, we back-tracked (as you can see in today’s image above). There were larger pods of dolphins along the route. As we found ourselves west of the NOAA East Channel Buoy, a lone adult whale was found. It appeared to be in transit mode and moving farther to the east. We had nice looks on each surface interval.

On the way home…more dolphins.

You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
