Whale Watching Zodiac Style

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 2
We had a great day whale watching and another nice day on the ocean, very light winds and 3-4' swells. The whales once again put on a good show off Goverment Point and Boiler Bay. We are hopeing for a repeat for tomorrow.

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 1
After a foggy morning the skies cleared for the afternoon and the ocean conditions were absolutely beautiful, 3' swell and no wind at all, it was actually warm. The whales were there at Goverment Point and they put on a great show this afternoon coming up close to boat to take a closer look.
