Our morning trip began with a scattering of Minke whales on our way out towards the Ledge.
|You know it is going to be a good day when we spot whales (a Minke whale!) as we pass by the Isles of Shoals 6 miles offshore|

Once we knew both animals were a-okay and our pounding hearts returned to normal beats we continued on our way. Soon we were seeing more spouts. We first got a quick look at Halfmoon before heading off to investigate the other blows.
|Hello once again Halfmoon|
