|Simultaneous whale spouts!|
In addition to watching these whales we also had a few Minke whales pop up around us as they too were moving on through the area.

|Hello again Patches!|
As we headed for home and passed by a few more Minke whales (6 in total for the day) the ocean still had a few more surprises awaiting for us. Our travels brought us into view of 2 more Humpback whales. It was Valley and her calf. We spent a little time with this pair and even got the chance to see both Mom and her calf raise their tails above the surface together (a behavior that is learned many times causing the calf to not quite figure out this body movement all the time).

|This Ocean sunfish swam right along side the boat giving everyone the chance to snap a few pictures of it!|
|A pretty perfect combination: a beautiful calm ocean and a whale spout|
