10am: This morning we started with seals off Black Ledge then made our way offshore. We picked up a finback on our way towards the Wolves and then a second fin whale and a humpback on the Wolves Bank! The humpback was IDed as Chevron. We also saw great and sooty shearwaters, a few Northern gannets and a razorbill and many porpoise before it was time to head back to St. Andrews.
1:30pm: This afternoon we saw some harbour porpoise on the way out offshore where we spent the majority of our trip with Chevron, a humpback whale. Chevron gave us lots of great looks at her sleepy self before we had to head back. We stopped with harbour and grey seals on the way back to St Andrews.
5pm: This evening, we started our trip towards Head Harbour Light where we encountered 2 minkes and the waters full of feeding porpoises. We were treated to a minke whale lunge feeding a couple of times as well, always an amazing sight! A fin whale made its way in off the light, and we followed it towards White Island and got some great looks before we had to make our way home.
