Better weather for this week’s last trip. We really enjoyed this week’s passengers. They were so patient with the lousy weather and I think (hope) they all had a good time. Today we saw the first group of spotteds (about 13) at 17:11. We were going through encounter withdrawal, so we hopped into the water even though the animals were a bit on the move. And, of course, they didn’t stick around, so it was back on the boat for surface observations. From the boat we were able to see Lil’ Jess (#35), un-named #25, Romeo (#10), Finn (#09), Split Jaw (#22), Billy (#64), and a young dolphin with a “rash” on its side that we saw earlier in the month. We also saw the first nurse shark with the dolphins of the season…. Our second water entry was good, but light was fading, so we’ll see how the footage comes out. It was great to see the smiles on everyone’s faces after their final swim! The passengers ate together at Red Lion and we met them for a farewell drink. We’ll miss this group! Tomorrow is a day off…and I think I am really, truly taking the entire day off! Woo-Who! Until next time, Kel
