Our Tuesday started off with stormy weather, forcing us to cancel our first two cruises. But the sightings on the Whales and Cocktails more than made up for it! On this trip we saw 30 different whales, lots of Moms and Babies and lots of surface activity including tail lobs, breaches (from adults and calves) and pec slaps. We had several close encounters with whales swimming right up along side our boat. And as we headed back into the bay, we were all excited to see another whale breach behind us.
