Today was another FIN-tastic day on the Privateer! We had great sea conditions all day. We encountered a couple of Mola molas feeding on By-the-wind-sailors aka Velella velellas. We also spent some time hanging out with one Fin whale during our morning trip. We got some amazing looks as it circled the boat. During the afternoon trip, only a few miles away from Mission Bay we sighted a large pod of ~200 Long-beaked common dolphins. We also caught up with two friendly Fin whales that circled our boat and played follow-the-leader.
