2000+ Common dolphins (throughout entire trip
6 Risso’s dolphins
Crew: Captain Dave, Captain Colton, Jill
Naturalists: Debbie Shelley, Terri Wright, and I was PID
The Humpbacks were hard to find, but Captains Dave & Colton did an excellent
job and gave the guests what they were looking for! The first humpback did do
much beyond a few surface breaths before some deeper dives. The Risso’s
Dolphins were a fun treat and it was my first time seeing them! To find the
final 2 Humpbacks we had to travel pretty far east, but Colton spotted them and
they gave us some good looks as well as some sweeping horizontal tail throws
before we had to head back home. The common dolphins were, as always, a delight
for the passengers!
The weather was gorgeous and sea conditions were nice until our return trip.
Winds had picked up by then & we were treated to lots of whitecaps & lots of
spray to the left side of the boat.
It was a great day!
