August 1 - Atlantic Queen

Great day on the Atlantic Queen! We started off with a few good looks at two different fin whales, although they were taking un-character-istically long dives this afternoon.

We searched for awhile after we left these whales and our friends on the Starfish. Then our intern, Amy, spotted some splashing off in the distance...a pod of Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins!

These dolphins put on a great show for us, performing lots of acrobatic leaps and swimming right up next to the boat. We even saw a few calves in the pod!

Thanks to Amy for her great spotting, and these awesome dolphin photos!

Congratulations to Francheska for winning our raffle today, and thanks to all of our patient passengers!
