Hello whalewatchers,

Today we started at beautiful Bahia Agua Verde with a pre-breakfast walk. One of the local fishermen guided the group up to a small cave that has some cave paintings in it. Everyone enjoyed the cave and the walk.

After breakfast we had a combo skiff ride and snorkel for those interested. The water has warmed up to the low 70′s whish is a huge improvement over the past three trips. Around lunch time we went offshore to look for a whale or two we found a cow and calf Bryde’s whale, a cow and calf blue whale, fin whales in the distance and to finish the day, we came across about 100 to 150 pilot whales. That was spectacular! The moon rise and the sunset with the colors in the sky was as good as it gets. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, we shut the boat down including the generator and had complete silence with pilot whales spouting and the sunset along with the moon rise. Now it doesn’t get any better than that. It was a very powerful experience for everyone.
Headed south after the back deck buffet and margaritas.
More tomorrow,
Capt Art
