Blue skies, blue seas, and a BLUE WHALE! We found this beauty 10-miles from shore! It surfaced for breaths several times, with only 3 to 10-min dive times! It circled the area, near the continental shelf. On our way home, we found an amazing pod of ~30 Offshore BOTTLENOSE dolphins! They were very active and inquisitive! They hung out all around the boat, while porpoising and checking us out! A little cow/calf pair was seen in the mix too!
