2014 Sightings | April 12

Today we had a wonderful afternoon with sunny, beautiful weather. We headed towards mid-bank and spotted a slow traveling fin whale on the western edge of the bank. We stayed on the fin whale the entire time and had great looks on all sides of the boat, with about 5-6 minute dive times and 4-6 breaths per surfacing. There was also a minke whale in the area and it was seen quickly on a couple of occasions.

Not too many birds were in the area today but we got a nice look at a northern gannet as it came across the bow and a few gulls were seen during the trip. It was a nice calm day for whale watching and everyone was very pleased with the trip!
