Simply FIN-tastic

Today was FIN-tastic with lunge feeding fin whales on both our afternoon and evening departures.  Even though there was no lunge feeding this morning we did see a number of finbacks as well as a few minke whales and a young humpback was breached once, with zero warning, and was relatively uncooperative the rest of the time (I was not able to get an ID on the humpback).

This is the humpback we saw on our 10am trip

Of course....SEALS

Female grey seal I adore, look at that red head

  1. Great seal pictures. The harbour seal has a beautiful smile, very pleased with itself. I like the red head too. She seams to be a little bored with the whole thing. Their faces and expressions are remarkable. Thanks.

  2. I adore the seals, I really do. I could spend the entire trip with them but I am sure other some of the passengers may get bored, lol.
