05-10-2013: Humpbacks Continue to be a Sure Thing, Reports of Blue Whales, Risso’s Dolphins

The weather has been a little on the unstable side lately. We have had decent conditions in the morning, then things get pretty mixed up by the afternoon.

Today we had some excellent views of a handful of humpbacks that were circling the boat as they fed about 20′ below the surface.

Throw in a nice tail lob and fluke flash and call it good. The weather picked up quick. After about 30 minutes checking out these animals, the pesky wind-waves made for some rocking and rolling. But we still managed to spend well over an hour hanging with about 4 humpbacks and we could see other blows in the distance.

After a while, the wind picked up and made the going rough. So we turned around and rode it home.
