Huge seas over the past 2 days prevented Cat Balou to go whale watching. Conditions on the water had improved today & Cat Balou was back out looking for whales. We sighted a total of 6 Humpbacks but none were spending much time on the surface. Researcher Tizoc was pleased that all whales fluked up each time they surfaced enabling him to photograph them for ID. We believe that the quiet behaviour may be a result of them experiencing the wild sea conditions that we have had over the past two days. While we were with the first pod we put the hydrophone in & heard some clear singing.
All passengers were offered a return free cruise tomorrow when we hope to see more surface behaviour.
