She Just Came To Say Hello!

This individual popped up next to the boat yesterday afternoon. We had an absolutely amazing day on the water we were surrounded by a very large pod of long finned pilot whales at one point and then later the killer whales showed us some spectacular tail slapping behaviour. It was a great way to start the week!

Here is too a great second week in the field!
