10am: This morning we headed out and checked out some harbour and grey seals at high tide. Then we found a minke to watch, along with lots of harbour porpoise. Then we got a call from Captain John on the Odyssey about fin whales, the largest species of whale to enter the Bay and the second largest in the world, so we went out to check 2 of them out. We picked up another minke on our way back to St Andrews!
1:30pm: This afternoon we had a wedding party charter. We headed out and looked hard for the finbacks from the morning. We struck out on fins but picked up a couple minke whales, one of whom was Slice! Slice gave us quite the thrill when they popped up right beside the boat and we could clearly see the whale’s face, mittens (white bands on the pectoral flippers), and tail! It’s like Slice was saying congrats to the newlyweds too (this may sound fantasy wishy-washy but it was lovely)! We saw harbour porpoise, eagles, and seals as well!
5pm: This evening we went out to spend time with bird groups, harbour porpoise, 2 minke whales, and harbour and grey seals. The waters were flat calm and oh so beautiful. We even had a rainbow sundog.
