10am: This morning we headed out into fog. We quickly picked up a minke whale and got great looks at it actively feeding. We saw many porpoise and seals as well! A great time for such a foggy start!

1:30pm: This afternoon we had a bald eagle fly alongside for a while. We played briefly in the Old Sow whirlpool, the largest tidal whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere, and found many, many porpoise. We picked up 3 minke whales, 2 of which were being difficult to watch so we spent time with the one that was spending a lot of time at the surface! We stopped with seals on the way back to St Andrews.

5pm: We had a charter this evening and it was such a lovely and enthusiastic group. We had really good looks at a minke whale this evening and some looks at a fin whale!
