12 noon whale watching trip - Leah
Today's trip proved to be quite unique. Instead of having multiple of a single species we had individuals of lot's of unique species. We started our trip with an Ocean Sunfish that was rather large but we didn't spend much time with it due to wanting to see the whales in the distance. After that we had a quick look at a sneaky basking shark, that spent it's time right under the water and due to the swell it was hard to get a clear photo of it.
Then we moved on and found a finback whale that was giving us great looks on either side of the boat. This whale crossed under the bow of our boat and I was able to get an amazing sequence of photos watching this animal dive once it crossed.
Finally to top off the trip we had a humpback whale that was determined to not let me see its tail, so I'm not exactly sure of the ID.
