We took a whale watch cruise on Sept. 6 2007. It was amazing and something I recommend everyone do. The day was gorgeous, our guide was pleasant, and the whales, finbacks to be exact, were -mostly- cooperative. I was amazed that they were “common” in those waters, since it was such a novelty for me. It was around mating season, so we actually wound up following a pair of whales plus a single whale that traveled close to them. Their coordination was awe inspiring- seeing them blow and dive together. Not only the whales but the strong breeze, sun, movement of the boat and other wildlife made it an experience to remember.
