What a perfect way to start your Monday, spending time with not one but 4 Finback whales and a Minke whale. Our first sighting was our Minke just 2-3 miles from shore, it popped up and actually surprised us, though it had other plans in mind we did see it for a few surfacing.
The stars of the day were our fin whales, all 4 “enormous” in size and grace. Most were in about 450 feet of water with bait relatively close in the water column which meant feeding and time below.
Today was also a bird trip aboard one of our other vessels, The Captains Lady II, with Dave Larson from The Joppa Flats Audubon Society. Both whale watch and bird trip were completed with great sea conditions and sightings. We have 2 more bird trips on the schedule, Monday August 10, and Monday September 14 from 9 am to 3 pm.
Whale watching is full steam ahead, everyday Monday through Thursday 10 am to 2 pm, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 2 trips, 8:30 and 1:30. Keep in touch on our sightings page and facebook!
We look forward to seeing you soon.
