August 4 - Atlantic Queen

Started off looking a little rough out on the ocean today, but we ended up with a beautiful afternoon! Our first find was a fin whale, who was taking rather long dives.

Luckily this whale was taking at least 8 breaths every surfacing, so we managed to get some good looks none-the-less!

We then left our friends on the Starfish to search for more whales. Our next fin whale was taking very short dives as well as short surfacings, in stark contrast to our first animal! Because of this, we were able to get some amazing views of this whale, who was surprisingly close to shore. We even got to see some whale poop, which the passengers were very entertained to learn. There must have been some good feeding in that area today!

Thanks to our great passengers - hope you enjoyed the trip!
