August 11- Prince of Whales

Fin whale were close to shore today! We were always in sight of land, which is rare when we normally travel 20+miles offshore to see whales!

See the land, water tower and windmill in the background??

The fin whales were moving around a lot but Captain Ryan did his best to get the boat in the position to give us some great looks!

Even the blows from these whales were impressive!
We did identify 2 of our 5+ fin whales. This one is #0615 and has a scar from an entanglement behind its fin.
Also on our way home, we had a surprise when a fin whale popped up near us. This one was #0926, first seen in the area in 2009.
Thanks for visiting us and the whales today!
