A fantastic and hearty group of seafaring passengers braved strong winds and rough seas to get great looks at 1 humpback whale and 1000 long-beaked common dolphins. This was not a trip for the meek, as Captain Dave pointed out dockside prior to embarking. Those that did stay seemed to really enjoy the salt spray and other delights that many land-lubbers would gladly forgoe. By the way, none of these good people had wooden legs, eye patches, or drank grog during the sightings.
Seriously, we located a single juvenile whale in the middle of The Lanes, northeast of The Cave. In the same region we had 4 or 5 groups of dolphins, each with a couple hundred individuals. It is always a thrill to see our dolphins “in their element,” riding down the face of the wind-swept breakers and enjoying every second of it.
You never know what Mother Nature has in store.
