And the third (my favorite of the day) is of the dolphin jumping along side the boat.
After seeing the dolphins there was a lot more of simply blue, but we were going somewhere fast. Eventually we caught up with a pod of 6 Orcas (one male, one calf and 4 females). This made my day, because when out whale watching my goal is always to see Orcas.

The last two photos for today are of birds. First, a Black-footed albatross and second, a gull with a flat fish.
