July 6 Atlantic Queen

We had a gorgeous day, and several whales around!  Minke whales were the species of the day, and we got some fantastic looks at 5 different minke whales, two of which delighted us with looks right off the boat several times!

Even though these are one of the smallest baleen whale species, minke whales average 20-30 feet in length, so they are pretty large animals! The minkes today were darting all around, likely chasing after prey. At least once, we even smelled some stinky minke breath - evidence that the whale had been feeding recently!

Thanks to all who shared part of their holiday weekend with us, and congratulations to Jacob for winning our daily drawing!
