The ocean was calm so we loaded the boat with spotters. We were looking for 3 missing crab pots we couldn't find earlier when we pulled in for the season. Heading straight out to the farthest waypoint we honed in on our target with ever decreasing circles. Although we never found the three missing pots, we saw plenty of other things out in the bay. A whale breached straight off our bow, our crab pot hunt quickly turned into a whale watching ride from there.
