Henry B. Bigelow

Having an absolutely amazing time out here-- sighted many whale species (just saw two blue whales a few hours ago), lots of dolphins, and mola molas. On June 19th, dozens of dolphins surrounded the ship. Miniature dolphin calves swam next to their protective mothers while the others had a hell of a time jumping and dancing with each other. Just lovely. I went down to the weatherdecks and listened to them chattering.

You can track us in real-time here--just select Henry B. Bigelow as the ship.
