We tried to watch it from the boat. There were some clouds that kept getting in the way and we only had our iPads and a pinhole to view it with. Being so far North, there was no perceived darkening of the sky but we could see the partial blocking of the sun.
My wife was kind of disappointed but fortunately for me right about then a pair of humpback whales surfaced a 100 meters off our beam. We idled back and they paced us for 20 minutes. This was between Westview and Hardwick Island.
