This morning we first started with a couple of Minke whales. Turns out these two animals in the area would be the start to the 7 we saw throughout our travels of the morning.

We left the Fin whales behind and saw out in the distance a different species. With such incredible ocean conditions we ended up making our way to another whale a few miles away. It was Halfmoon the Humpback whale.

As we continued around Jeffreys Ledge we saw a few blows in the distance and decided to first check out a Fin whale. This animal was all over the place! Only coming up for maximum 2 breaths before diving under the surface, this whale was on a mission. Luckily it wasn't moving great distances in between dives so we got some nice looks at this very quick moving animal this afternoon.
