Oct 8

Although it was an overcast day, the seas were very calm and the whales were great! We got to hang out with a few single humpback whales including one named Manhattan. There were a couple others in the area but we didn’t get to ID all of them. The highlight of the trip was getting to hang out with three different mother and calf pairs. The moms were Zeppelin, Palette and Wizard. Palette’s calf was probably the most active, breaching in the distance a few times and then once when we got close. Her calf also popped up next to the bow a few times seeming a little bit curious about who we were. There were also some great birds out there today including a few Cory’s shearwaters and juvenile Northern Gannets. It’s fun to see the changes in behaviors and wildlife as we move closer to the end of the season. Join us this month before we are done for the winter!
