On Ocean Potion at 10 am with Roland Lines, Camilla and Ian to Challenger where we were surrounded by whales for several hours. We saw whales consistently throughout the day and a couple of times while moving from one group of whales to another to obtain fluke ids we spotted whales under or right beside us. A lucrative day for fluke ids which we have yet to categorize and log. We found whales in the places where we expected to find them. There were a couple of surface active groups comprising as many as 8-10 animals with plenty of breaching activity, lobtailing, pec slapping etc. At a quarter past five we were on Challenger with four whales around us. We had a bonus on the way home with another active group of four whales at Sally Tuckers. Home by 8 pm.

Camilla recognized the fluke to the left as Ping, a whale we had here a year ago.
