Hello whalewatchers:

We arrived at Punta Colorado just in time for sunrise this morning.  The folks went for a hike right after breakfast then a snorkel under the cliff. We took off right before lunch and right away got on a nice spot of bottlenose dolphin milling around.
Then we proceeded north further into the gulf.  We didn’t see a whole lot until about 4pm when the ocean came to life and all of a sudden we were surrounded by blue whales.  We were with the blue whales for about a half hour when one started lunge feeding right in front of us. Soon they were all feeding.  I counted 8 blue whales that we saw today.
We’re anchored at Tambobiche right now and will go for a bird walk in the morning.  Beautiful weather today.
