A great way to start off September!

Good evening everyone, the first week in September has been wonderful with consistent fin whale and minke sightings on every departure.  We also had our Annual North Atlantic right whale trip on Sunday, September 7th but I will cover that in a separate post.

I wanted to share some photos with from the past week....

Lets start with finners...
