Expedition Notes from Dr. Dean Miller on board a trip with Eye to Eye Marine Encounters:

I had the most amazing encounter today with a female minke whale (that we have swum with for the last 8 years) and her first ever calf!! Spent 40 minutes with these two while giggling like a little kid through my snorkel as the baby minke, only weeks old, was so playful and energetic and was super excited to meet its first ever human  It doesn't get any better then that. Today I really did have the best job in the world!"

Today's update from the Minke Whale Project team..."on a small 14m research vessel (Viking) off Lizard Island working in conjunction with the live-aboard dive fleet (Eye to Eye Marine Encounters and Elizabeth E) satellite-tagging our dwarf minkes with 6/13 successfully deployed so far (3 SPLASH TDRs and 3 location-only SPOT tags). All transmitting. Best weather for the last 2-3 years so the minke gods/goddesses are smiling upon us!" WCAresponsible
