August 29th, 2014 ~ 12:00 p.m. Whale Watch - Tiffany

Despite a rough sea we had a miraculous whale watch. Thank you to all our passengers who helped these magnificent sea creatures perform! For those of you on board, you know what I’m talking about. It’s amazing what a wave of the arm will do:)

Our first sighting was a mom and calf humpback whale (Ventisca and her 2014 calf).  Just after we located this pair we witnessed a double spinning head breach. Unable to get this on camera, it was an amazing sight! Thank goodness this pair stayed active and seemed to enjoy us as much as we enjoyed them. As we made our way closer Ventisca’s calf performed multiple tail breaches, rolls and flipper slaps.

It was breathtaking to have this mom and calf pair so close to us – it gave us a sense for how large these whales are.

After watching this mom and calf pair, we headed home. But on our way home our crew member, Ronnie, spotted an ocean sunfish. We got a great look at this fish – it ended up right off the port side of our vessel.

Lastly, one of our youngest passengers on board spotted a finback whale! He yelled, “WHALE” and yes it was!! We watched this whale surface a few times and then we had to push on back to P-town Harbor.
