It was a day of viewing magnificent scenery in all directions! It was absolutely beautiful being out on the water, the blue sky and blue water reflected was gorgeous, we could not have asked for lovelier weather! And while there were no orcas in our area, there were fabulous viewings of Humpback Whales and Freckles and Guardian were amongst the count of three Humpback Whales observed on our morning and afternoon tours. Humpback Whales are wonderful to observe, they always surprise and never disappoint!
Touring through the islands homeward bound it is always a treat that we love to share with our guests for there is so much beauty in the big and small, to explore!
