Blue whales proved elusive yesterday despite the whole fleet searching for their whereabouts. Found a few hundred amazing common dolphins offshore between 7.5 and 9 miles – easily within range thanks to the speed and efficiency of our new boat, Bimini. These commons were bow riding for almost an hour, as if you could just reach out and pet them. And then the minke whales showed following outside the dolphins. Saw two and stayed with them until we went inside to look over the blue whale grounds from the day before. Beautiful weather this past week!
