This morning our wake up call invited us up on the bridge to watch whales and birds. Several whales were in the middle distance and pretty far towards the shore of a nearby island. Based on what the naturalists saw, and on Len’s photo of the fluke, they think this was a fin whale. At least two whales were visible, spouting and breaching quite a few times.

Overnight the boat navigated around Isabella, the largest island. We crossed the equator into the northern hemisphere and are now about to cross back into the southern hemisphere, having eaten another huge buffet breakfast.
