When we say that we never know what we will see from day to day, we really mean it. Every day is different and the past few days have showcased that fact. If you are following the Prince of Whales' sightings, you will see that two days ago, we saw many humpback whales. Yesterday we were graced by dolphins. Today we found one humpback whale (Patches- a new visitor for the season!) and one minke whale on the morning trip, and a fin whale (Ladder!) on the afternoon trip.
After following along with a very cooperative minke whale for a bit, we got a call from our friends on the Granite State about a humpback whale nearby. We were short on time but certainly didn't want to pass up the chance to see who this whale was! As we moved into the area and were waiting for the humpback to resurface, suddenly on the left side of the boat we hear a loud "Psssshhhawwww"! The humpback came up right next to us! Awesome! Though we were a little late getting back to the dock, I think it was well worth it!
