Sunday's afternoon trip was a bit more active with several minke whales inshore, near Jeffreys Ldege, as well as a couple pods of Atlantic white sided dolphins!! The minkes were great, and the dolphins were, well, busy. We had a hard time getting close looks at them as they seemed more interested in chasing fish than visiting with our boat.

Monday's trip was a bit rough....literally. The winds were stronger than predicted and the seas were pretty steep offshore. We decided to keep the ride as smooth as we could by heading north, along the coast, to an area between the Isles of Shoals and Boon Island where we have seen whales recently. Unfortunately, even with the cooperation of other whale watch boats in the area, the whales didn't show themselves. The wind and sea conditions were not helping us at all in our search! We ended up heading home, with our tail between our legs and no whales to show for our efforts. Our course home took us through the Isles of Shoals and we did get some great viewings at some marine mammals- seals!! One of the rocks near Duck Island was covered in harbor seals and we had a curious grey seal pop us close to us too!
