Tons of blues & Humpbacks !!
Here is what we watched closely today:
12 Blue Whales 10 Humpback Whales 12 Common Dolphins 6 Risso's Dolphins 18 dinner plate size Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola)
The seas were quite a bit less bumpy than yesterday AND things are supposed to be even nicer over the weekend. The numbers above reflect only those beasts that we settled in with and watched closely. Seriously, there were spouts all around and off to the west as far as you could see. Actual whale populations today were well above 50+ whales. Several Blue Whales fluked up. Several Humpbacks made close and friendly approaches to the delight of all. The Risso's Dolphins were seen mid-Channel, and were all mothers with calves. And the little Mola mola were clustered together in two close groups. Another especially fantastic day for wildlife.
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.
