Beautiful Sun

A beautiful day in the sun with 5 sperm whales, 1 minke whale, 12 icebergs, bald eagles, puffins, guillemots and murres. We have identified on of the sperm whales as an old friend Cook, who we last saw in 2013. We also have identified a new whale to the group. In keeping with our explorer theme we have named him Burton. He is named after Sir Richard Francis Burton, the great British explorer. During his time in Africa, Somali warlords impaled his face with a spear, which left a nasty scar. Burton has a pretty big scar on his back so we thought it was a fitting name.

WE HAVE WHALES!!!!

A gorgeous morning on the water this morning with 6 sperm whales, 12 harp seals, puffins, bald eagles and 15 icebergs!!!! Some of these whales are ones that we have seen before. Stay tuned for a more detailed post with their pictures and previous sightings.

First Trip of The Season

Our first trip of the season today! We had 1 harp seal, 2 bald eagles, guillemots, cormorants, kittiwakes and 5 icebergs! One of the icebergs has a pile of sediment on it, maybe glacial till? We have never seen THAT before!

Check out the sediment on the right hand side of the iceberg.
