The Seafari was incredible! It was from 7am to 5pm on Sept 17th and Captain Frank went where he knew whales would be. The ocean conditions were perfect! Almost no chop at all, a very small 2ft ground swell at 9 seconds. Overcast skies with some scattered light showers that never bothered the passengers. The official count was 8 humpbacks, 4 Minkes, Sharks, turtles, some bluefish action, great views and great company. The boat was filled with serious whale and bird watchers. For the birders it did not work out too well, no fault of the captain. We went to the mud hole and it is usually packed with all different types of bird life and there was nothing. No whales, dolphins, or fish life on the surface. A shark here and there but tons of jellies and a few Turtles which was cool. I had a camera malfunction on the 1DXII, and all 760 photos shot were not sharp- they all went into the trash bin. The amazing Oatmeal, Cherry, White Chocolate Chip Cookies kept my mind off the malfunctioning camera, thanks Beth.
A big thank you to the Captains and Crew of American Princess Cruises; a great Seafari adventure was had by all! Try to make it out on the next Seafari on Oct 1st.
