Today was one of the best trips I've had this season! It was made even more so because honestly, as we were cruising out, my expectations weren't too high - after what seemed like pretty early sightings yesterday, today we cruised for nearly 2 hours without seeing anything, and I began hoping just to see something! Suddenly - bam! We hit the right spot!
We got some good looks at a minke whale, and then saw blows in the distance. We cruised up to find some Atlantic white-sided dolphins - my first dolphin sighting this season! So that was great - but then a fin whale popped up in the middle of them. To our excitement, this fin whale turned into 3 fin whales, all swimming near the dolphins! When we see fin whales, we usually see just one, maybe 2 at a time - so to see 3 together, and surrounded by our favorite toothed whale species, was very special and spectacular to watch!
