Today was such a flat-calm day on the ocean! It was like a lake 20 miles offshore! As we headed towards the Ledge, we found a big basking shark!! This one had some pretty extensive scars on its back, but it seemed to be doing ok and came close to us a couple times!

After spending some time with this pair we headed off in search of more activity to the east. We found several minke whales and a big fin whale! This fin whale was trucking, and finally we got a decent look at it. I'm not sure who this whale is yet but will search our catalog soon.
Thanks to the interested passengers today and to our awesome shark-diver friends who adopted Pinball and Gills, the basking shark! And congratulations to Sarah for winning our raffle! Stay dry out there!
