This survey began earlier than the previous one, which resulted in us leaving the dock before the official sunrise. Although the light was dim, the sea conditions were favourable for sightings with a beaufort of 3 and low sea swells. Halfway to the island of Saut d'Eau, around 6:20, the light improved. The vessel slowly circled the island to to find a safe way onto the island itself for our next trip and to enable the bird surveyers to get photographs of the nesting pelicans to help them make a species count. Although the surveying conditions remained favourable, there were no cetacean sightings either around the island or in transit back to the dock.
