This morning’s 10am whale watch turned around due to the rough seas and all passengers were given refunds. But by 2pm the seas had improved considerably so we headed out on board the Sanctuary with Captain Adam and crew. We headed out towards the southwest corner and quickly spotted some blows in the area.
We spotted 10 humpback whales with many more in the distance. Among those that we have been able to identify were Aerospace, Music, Shuffleboard and her calf. Many of the whales were subsurface feeding but we were lucky to get some very close looks at Shuffleboard and an unidentified whale kick feeding and surface lunging right next to the boat.
It was very exciting and well worth the trip out to the bank.
