We had a little slow period this afternoon where we didn’t see too much, but then we came across an area of bait fish on the surface. First we noticed the shearwaters feeding, then we had great looks at a Bryde’s whale cow and calf. The ridges on the cow’s rostrum were very evident. Then we went a little further and came across a great big blue whale that we were able to track and we had some awesome close looks with perfect lighting, Then as a finale, the whale fluked right next to the boat! It doesn’t get much better than that.
The weather is good and we are looking forward to tomorrow where the forecast looks good as well.
