August 20- Prince of Whales

Refreshing day on the water today. Although it took us some time to find the whales today (why must they move around so much??) we eventually got some wonderful looks at a large pod of Atlantic white sided dolphins and a humpback whale!

The dolphins were seemingly all around the boat- everyone got great looks!

The humpback whale was a bit more difficult to keep up with. The first dive we witnessed was 13 minutes! But at least we got to see the whale's tail on this dive!

The second time it surfaced, it was feeding and came up much closer but no chance of a tail on that surfacing :( We have identified this whale as Doric, a 10 year old humpback whale born to Glo in 2001.
