As we continued on, a blue shark popped up nearby. We got some quick looks at it before it took off.
A bit further offshore, we saw several sei whales!! Sei whales have been in the area recently, feeding on copepods and krill that are currently abundant. Though sei whales are the fastest species of baleen whale, this unlucky one managed to still get hit by a boat. The scars from a propeller are very visible and deep.

The sei whales were singles, pairs, trios and sometimes in groups of 4! It seemed wherever we looked we saw spouts of more and more of these rare whales.
