Y ou would have thought today was Humpday as we we had a great time hanging out with Humpbacks all day! During our morning trip, we set out to deeper waters and encountered hundreds of Long-beaked Common dolphins! They were everywhere all around us! Not far, we sighted a spout from a Humpback whale that was following the dolphins. We got some amazing looks as it traveled to the south. While waiting for it to surface, a Minke whale popped up near us. We could see on our depth finder that there was plenty of bait down below which is likely why all the wildlife was drawn to the area. During the afternoon tour, we set out to the same zone, zoomed by one Inshore Bottlenose dolphin. 3-miles from shore a pod of Long-beaked Common dolphins cruised south. Out at the second drop-off, we sighted a massive pod of Long-beaked Common dolphins. We estimated we observing a MEGApod! Two Humpbacks appeared to be following the dolphins. We got to watch as they paralleled each other by about 50 yds.
We tend to see an increase in Humpbacks in the fall, so come on out and a join us soon!
