No blue whales today - guess a couple thousand dolphins will have to suffice! Between our two trips today we saw more than 2,000 common dolphins putting on a lively show. Every day is different... Can't wait to search again tomorrow

Lots of sunshine, dolphins, and a minke whale today! We spotted the minke as it came up for a breath right in front of our boat. Often times it's hard to spot this species from far away, as they don't have a very visible blow. We stayed with it for about 20 minutes or...

Thousands of common dolphins out there today! Probably as many as we've ever seen aboard the privateer. It's really tough to estimate just how many we encountered as we were driving through literally miles of dolphins. All aboard the Privateer had endless views of...

Alas, both trips on the Privateer came up empty today! It was a beautiful sunny day, but seems no dolphins or whales wanted to make an appearance. Unfortunately that's a risk you take when you seek these majestic creatures in their natural habitat - which happens to...

Minke! It's been 4 days since out last baleen whale sighting. The past few days have been amazing days for dolphin watching, but today we were fortunate enough to see both toothed whales (common dolphins), and a baleen whale (minke whale). The minke was in feeding...

"Dolphins Rule" should be the theme of today's cruises. We saw at least 2,000 common dolphins in the morning. After some searching in the afternoon, we came across a mola mola (ocean sunfish), and heading back to the dock, came across a pod of stampeding common...
