Whale Watching
SPECTACULAR TRIP!! 2 Species of Whales and 2 Species of Dolfins
Today’s trip couldn’t have been better! We found a leatherback and bottlenose dolfins (60) shortly after passing Montauk Light. Before 11:30am we found our fin whales. We spent time with 5 fin whales (1 singleton & 2 mother/calf pairs). There were 2 minkes and 3 other fin whales in the area. Great views of 5 fin whales were had. As we headed home, we found an aggregation of 120 short-beaked common dolfins. They swam to us and around us, rode our bow, vocalized and gave us a great chance to watch them. Also, tons of birds. (See list below)
8 fin whales, 2 minke whales, 60 bottlenose dolfins, 120 short-beaked common dolfins, 1 leatherback turtle, 79 Wilson’s storm petrels, 1 sooty shearwater, 9 Cory’s shearwaters, 3 Manx shearwaters, 11 short billed dowichers.
