Saturday, May 30

Our whale watching experience today included a type of whale we have yet to spend time with so far this season. Today we got the chance to watch three of the second largest animals on Earth! We checked out a pair of Fin whales and even a single Fin whale as it moved through the area. What a nice find to see these massive creatures again for another season. One of the whales in our pair is #0720, a Fin whale first seen around Jeffreys Ledge in 2007.

We are still in the process of figuring out the other whale in the pair but, we were able to positively identify the third Fin whale in the area.
Currently unidentified Fin whale with #0720
Fin whale #9709 is back, a whale we have seen in the area often over the past years, and a whale first seen on Jeffreys Ledge in 1997. So nice to see some familiar fins!
