August 31 Atlantic Queen

Some fog appeared to be rolling in as we left the harbor, but it turned out to be a pretty clear day!We had nice, calm seas which were perfect for spotting minke whales, and there were plenty of these 20-30 foot baleen whales!

We saw 7-8 minke whales throughout the trip, and even saw a few harbor seals popping their heads up to get a look at us!  We got some great looks at minke whales right off the bow.

We also got some terrific looks at one of my favorite seabirds - the northern gannet.  There were several of these bright white adults around as well!

All in all, a great day! Thanks to all who joined us today! Thanks also to volunteers Jessica, Dan and Ally for their help!
