While sailing around Antigua today from Carisle Bay on our way to an anchorage in Nonsuch Bay on the east side of the island, Murray spotted a whale breaching up ahead of us. We quickly changed course and motored over to see if we could get close enough for some photos. Luckily this male "Humpback Whale](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/)Humpback_whale was not too worried about our little boat and keep breeching and rolling on the surface to give us a good show.
To cap it off, a pod of Bottlenose Dolphin came up to play around the boat for a bit. As they rolled next to the side of us you could see their eyes looking at us with their big smile. What wonderful animals! They stayed for a little while jumping alongside our bow then sped off.
A great day of wildlife encounters!
