Went on the 12 hour whale watching trip the other day. We started off pre sunrise and we’re able to look for meteors we are at the peak of the meteors from Hailey’s comet. Some people saw several while others saw none. Next event was sunrise and that did not disappoint. Sunrise over the ocean is beautiful met dolphins along the way and they played around the boat for awhile. Fun! Next on to the triple wrench area but it was strange. Few boats around while 2 years ago the area was covered with boats. Searched and searched for whales but nothing. Decision was to go to the beginning of the Canyon. At the tip it is 500 feet deep and it goes much deeper! Two fin whales were sighted but they were far area other things seen were a Great Blue Heron, jelly fish, turtle and more dolphins.
Of interest, one of the boats from Cape May went to the triple wreck area on the same day and saw humpback whales as well as a Right Whale! Saw area, just must have been a few miles apart. It was still a great trip with good people. Can not wait until the next one!
