Better Weather Ahead for Whale Watching

After days of wind and cold, it looks like we are finally getting a break. Starting tomorrow, Friday, the winds should diminish and temperatures should begin to climb back into a more Florida-like range through Sunday. We are planning to fly the AirCam all three days. In addition, while the humpbacks have kept us busy chasing after them up and down the coast, there are indications that right whales are out there, too. We confirmed two adult right whales at the north end of Butler Beach, near St. Augustine. We also had a right whale sighting report from Surf Club, just south of Marineland, but the whales headed out to sea before we could arrive. So, here’s to light winds and heavy whales over the next few days!
