Today, one of the most beautiful days in Bermuda so far this year, marked the first official day of the island’s whale-watching season for many tour boats. TNN’s Trevor Lindsay joined Captain Mike Jones on one of his boats.
Captain Jones first took guests out six miles from the island’s shore and then moved closer to the Challenger banks, where he said the whales are friendlier and get closer to the boats. He offers these tours until the last week in April, as the whales gradually leave the island’s waters in May.
Trevor spoke with two tour guests; one who has been whale watching before and one who had experienced it for the first time today.
“ This experience has been just amazing,” Bryan Paschal, From Alabama, said. “ I saw so many different whales and things that I did not expect to see. Not too many people can say that they’ve gone out and seen whales and this experience is unlike any other. Make sure that you book [with Captain Jones] and enjoy.”
People can see part of Mr. Paschal’s whale adventure from today on his YouTube Channel, BryanPaschalVlogs.
For Steph Brown, seeing the whales in their natural habitat again served as more fuel for her fight to save the earth and its oceans. Ms.Brown was watching environmental documentaries a while ago which is what started her passion for a clean environment. Every time she goes to the beach, she collects trash of all sorts.
“ Working with KBB is really important because they’ve taught me how to look out for different kinds of trash,” she said. “ When I’m out in the ocean, it makes me want to help out even more. I didn’t take any photos, I just took it all in and it was absolutely amazing.”
