This was a great day of passage on Argo. The wind has been calm and seas very flat, and early after sunrise we spotted several orcas. We turned around to get a closer look and spent half an hour watching the pod, which included two large males, a few females and two juveniles. After a morning of calm seas, hot sun and stainless steel maintenance we had an afternoon of marine science; we first had a class about marine reptiles and birds, then another on evolution, island biogeography and the Galapagos. In the late afternoon we caught a tuna that provided the group with fresh sashimi before dinner, and as now as the sun sets there are dolphins jumping off our starboard bow.andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
