We had a pretty awesome trip this morning and I wanted to share some photos with you!
We stopped first with a Mola mola, or ocean sunfish, the heaviest bony fish, on our way offshore to search for whales.
We didn’t have to search too far as we found a large and familiar fin whale just off the edge of the Owen Basin. We got some amazing looks at this whale, the conditions were perfect.
We were unable to find the fin whale in the afternoon (NOT for lack of trying, we searched near and far) but we did spend time with a minke in Head Harbour Passage. We also stopped with a very large group of feeding gulls, porpoise and a seal…they were all feeding on a large ball of herring. We tried to get some underwater footage and will share when I can.
Thanks so much for checking in today,
