11/02/2014 Fantastic triple species dolphin show plus Chronic Breaching Humpbacks

Today was spectacular! We started with a few whale sightings close in then were lured out to a dolphin event. There were about a thousand long beaked common dolphins that rode our bow and wake and leaped out of the water over and over for about an hour. Then Risso’s dolphins came in and gave us great looks and to top it off a small pod of Northern Right Whale Dolphins rode our bow. What an exquisite treat! Back to the whales of which they were a bit scattered. We got the big prize just a few miles from Moss when we came upon a pair of breaching young humpbacks. They alternated breaching and pectoral fin slapping for another hour. A complete delight! There are still plenty of spots on our weekday trips this week and the conditions are lovely.
