August 23 Atlantic Queen

What a gorgeous day on the water!  We had plenty of sightings - it seemed like the activity was non-stop from the time we left the dock!

We started out with a sighting of an ocean sunfish just outside the harbor.  Nearby, there were also a couple young harbor seals.  As we continued on, we were soon stopped by a pod of harbor porpoises, and then minke whale - one of about a dozen we saw throughout the trip!

In total, we saw two small pods of harbor porpoises, 4 harbor seals and about 12 minke whales - what a great trip!
