Has anyone seen whales recently on the North side of STT?

Yep last week I saw two jumping off the northside. I'm in Dorthea, they were going West it seemed. Supposedly there's a whale watching tour that goes out of sapphire and is next weekend? Anyone know about this? I want to go since hunny is working.

My bf and a little group of friends are thinking about doing it this weekend ornext weekend. We went a couple of years ago when it was on the Kekoa. Had a blast, saw no whales, though. Always a great time to be on a boat! And the $65 was complete worth it.

EAST whale watching is always a great day on a boat, I'm 0/3 on seeing whales. I'm going March 2 so you should go next weekend if you don't want my jinx. Whales were later last year it seemed, more sightings later March.

When I read the last two posts, my immediate thought was "gosh, Ric and I should drive over there to see what's going on!" Unfortunately, I'm sitting at my computer in Louisville, Kentucky!! lol.

Sorry to hear about the stranded whale on STX, but we saw some on the E.A.S.T. sail today. Near Magen's Bay. It was wonderful.

Per Facebook Friends...

But, um, you didn't give any information! Someone said he "heard" that the whale had been caught in some net. Don't know if that's true or if he/she just got stuck on the reefs. I saw someone post earlier today that there are boats out there trying to help it get to deeper water. Yesterday people were posting that there was blood in the water. I really hope this has a happy ending.

DPNR and Fish and Wild Life had been helping it since it was discovered. It was caught behind the shallow reef out in front I'd the Boy Scout Camp... According to one of the guys that I spoke to at the gun club, it is not a happy ending but it was not for a lack of trying.

Aw, I'm so sorry to hear that. I guess we can only do what we can.

Ya, I missed it but the guy said it was sad. I feel sorry not only for the animal but for all those people that spent the past two days trying to help!

I believe it was tangled in a net which they managed to get off the whale.

I was helping DPNR today.
No net. It was just in the wrong place.
We managed to get it moving in the right direction, but it missed a small channel in a line of reef. It tried to throw itself across the reef but couldn't make it, then used the last of its energy trying to roll back the way it came. If it had rolled the opposite way it would've been okay.
So close.
It was devastating to watch.

Man is that sad. Thank you to everyone who tried to save the whale.

I was just out at Isaac Bay yesterday and my friend and I were wondering if we would see any whales and whether they would ever get caught on the reef. Seriously weird that it happened. Tragic.
