Yacht America Sunset Sails with Blue Whales

Almost daily the famous sailing schooner America has been going to the ocean for late afternoon expeditions to see the Blue Whales, and catching the sunset on the way in. Loads have been good, but more importantly we are seeing a bunch of huge Blue Whales almost every trip. I’ve posted some video from August 17 when one of the crew told me he counted 11 spouts within his field of vision at one stage during the trip. Others said there were near 20 Blue Whales seen this day. Since then we have had similar encounters and I will get more footage and some great photos to you soon. We had our frined and professional photographer Victor Goodpasture ( on our trip last Thursday and the weather was perfect for photography…..I can’t wait to see his shots. Enjoy this brief video.
