Daily Whale and Dolphin Report:

Here are the species we watched closely today:
12 Blue Whale (many many more spouts all around us today)
8 Humpback Whale (a few more seen with binoculars)
50 Common Dolphins
5 Mola mola (ocean sunfish) including one active jumper

Beautiful conditions out on the grounds today, and the most whale spouts we’ve seen in a few years. The highlights included a super close friendly approach by a full grown humpback whale that came up along side the Condor Express and then slowly tail fluked a few feet off the bow. Take a look at the photos from today and judge for yourself (They should be online by tomorrow).
