August 7, 2017 – Set sail with the hopes of finding some whales. We ventured past the harbor seals near Turn Island and onto the wildlife at Goose Island. Many baby gulls are standing with their parents while cormorants fly to and fro. On a course for Salmon Bank we found lots of diving birds. Drifting in the current David tried his luck with a bull kelp horn to call the whales. Low and behold a minke whale makes an appearance giving us several passes. It looks like the same minke whale we saw on Aug 4th in the same area who has a tiny nick in the leading edge of his/her dorsal fin. Pretty cool.
- A magical mystical morning in the fog
