We had another incredible day with loads of sightings: Buller’s, Sooty and Pink-footed shearwaters; Black-footed albatross, Scripps and Guadalupe murrelets, Red-billed tropicbirds; Sabine’s gull; Townsends, Black, Leach’s and Ashy storm petrels, and a few highlights: an area of Cook’s petrels and a glimpse of a Hawaiian petrel.
We saw a pair of Bairds beaked whales, nine killer whales, and a few common dolphin. A great day!
If there is anyone concerned about our weather, we’ve enjoyed calm seas and light winds today. It looks like the same forecast for tomorrow. We plan on being tied up to the dock before the wind starts this weekend.
