What could make for a better outing, no?
In town for a day, so a whale watching we will go! A perfect October day - sunshine and a hundred of my closest friends onboard.
Since the season was coming to an end, the captain told us that we would need to go a bit further out to find some whales. We passed a couple lighthouses; one of which the beach was the sun worshiping area for tons of seals. As we approached, some off into the water they went, and all you could see was bobbing seal heads... The captain cut the engines way back and in closer we went to the banks. We hung out there for awhile, and then onward we went.
Another few miles, and "whale" port side. A few humpbacks, and a few minkes. The group of whales went from side to side, offering a show to each side of the vessel - spectacular site.... the arch, and then down with the tales for all to see. The humpbacks put on a pretty good show, rolling, waving with their flippers, then down again.
The naturalist on board was great. She was a wealth of info, and her experiences were fascinating to listen to.
A truly great day, thanks to the weather, the crew and of course, the star performers.
Just a thought to all those folks that post so negatively on whale watches when a whale is not seen. When a lottery ticket is purchased, are you guaranteed a win? OMG - no one can predict anything - so, if you HAVE to see a whale, go to sea world. On a whale watch, just sit back and take in anything you come across - birds, seals, porpoises, take in the salt air, the knowledge of the crew on board, the rocking of the vessel... I would almost guarantee that the crew wants to find a whale more than you, so cut them some slack.
