Great day to escape the heat! Both trips brought us great looks at two whales.
During our morning trip, we found Satula the humpback whale again. He was moving around a bit but surfaced close by a few times. Satula has been our "resident whale" since mid-May.

Our afternoon trip was also fantastic. We relocated Satula, the humpback again:
But we were unable to find fin whale #9709. Instead, we saw Pinball, another humpback whale! Pinball was very mellow and easy to get close looks at since she repeated surfaced near us while we sat idle. Pinball is a 24 year old humpback who has had 7 calves that we know of.
