After a few looks we decided to head further offshore. We crossed paths with another Minke whale in our travels before ending up with Mogul the Humpback whale.
With reports of this whale on the move (thanks to our friends aboard Captain's Lady III) we knew Mogul had been passing through the area but no one really knows what a wild animal is going to do when. We were lucky enough to spot Mogul out in the distance and quickly realized this whale had apparently decided to change up its behavior. The majority of the time we spent with this whale it was circling around and constantly creating bubble clouds each time it resurfaced after a deeper dive.

|A photo of our fish finder while we were watching Mogul. The top of the picture is the surface of the ocean. The water depth is only 126ft (solid thick red line running across the center of the photo) and the dark blobs of red in between 0-100ft is a whole lot of some thick mass: potential whale food! Wow!|
