We had gotten off to such an exciting start seeing these female humpacks for three days in a row that we were ready for a great summer.

It rained for a week straight, and when we finally could go out again... not a humpback to be seen!

Somedays we would go out and there was NOTHING... I gave a lot of lectures about what a humpback/finback would look and act like if we only saw one. Most of the people on the boat were truely philosophical about it, others expected a Disney experience and got pretty frustrated. Those extraordinary whale encounters come with either huge amounts of luck or perserverance.

Now and then we saw some dolphins....
