Today was one of the best days we have had all winter.
Another epic sunrise followed by our ever exciting spinner dolphins. We saw whales all around us. I was able to slip in and get some footage of two juveniles underwater playing around. We witnessed a mother as she fed her calf. The calf was a newborn. It was the smallest whale I have ever seen!
Na Pali was going off today! We started out with an absolutely beautiful sunrise.

As we headed out to sea we were met by a massive pod of spinner dolphins. They were jumping and spinning all over the place.
Then the whales started showing up. We saw several pods. We managed to get pretty close and even scored some underwater shots as they swam under the boat.
The day was perfect and the whales and dolphins definitely made our day.
Well the year has started off with a bang! Dolphins, whales, turtles, we even saw a huge manta ray.
The water was calm and we witnessed a mother humpback feeding her newborn calf. It was a pretty rare sighting and we arrived at the right moment. We saw a huge male slamming his tale as he fought for a mate.
Lots and lots of dolphins. On the way back we ran into a huge pod of 100+ dolphins as they leaped and jumped all around us.
One awesome day and a great way to start off the new year.
