Humpback whales and bow-riding porpoises!

Our sightings on June 30th: 2 Humpback whales, Dall’s porpoises, Harbour seals, Rhinoceros Auklets, Cassin’s Auklets, Bald Eagles+, 1 Fork-tailed Storm Petrel.

Yesterday we saw two Humpback whales (Ripple and Argonaut) and enjoyed good viewing of them as they made their way back and forth through the current intent on feeding. A large group of Dall’s porpoises joined us at the bow of the boat and it was very exciting having them swimming alongside. Seeing their sleek black and white bodies at close range it was a treat for everyone on board as were the Harbour seals, mothers and their pups hauled out on rocky shorelines.
