Report by: Blue Watch
Today we saw whales! Wow, jumping out of the sea and crashing, splashing, back. At times the mist from their blow-hole was apparent. Today I experienced the chance to see how the boat works, how to tie ropes up and see whales and one dolphin and I got to go on the front of the boat (bowsprit) and sleep most of the time.
