Questions & Answers

Q: Have you seen any sea turtles?

A: We have not seen any sea turtles yet. We have seen very little sargassum until today. Unfortunately, the seas were too rough to catch any. We have not seen any whales yet, although we did see pilot whales last year. Yesterday we enjoyed watching bottlenose dolphins playing in the swells as we motored towards shore. The dolphins rode in the bow wave, leapt out of the water occasionally, and seemed to try to outrace the boat.
