Tuesday, June 26, 2018

This morning our trip started with a large fin whale. This whale was heading in the opposite direction we were hoping to go so after a few looks at this massive mammal we pressed on towards Jeffreys Ledge.

We were able to spend time with Gondolier and Sedge the humpback whales. As these whales were busy moving around, busy searching for food, we even saw a minke whale moving through the area with 4 in total for the trip.

This afternoon we ended up finding 7 humpback whales and 3 minke whales. Our humpback whales were creating plenty of bubble clouds, taking advantage of the productivity in the Gulf of Maine, and feasting on fish. Doublet, Pinball, Clamp, Sedge, Doric and Spoon and her 2018 calf were the individuals we got a chance to spend time with.
