Humpback whales Pinball, Satula, and Hornbill were also seen on Saturday circling around the same general area. Both Pinball and Satula are Adopt-a-Whale creatures for our affiliated research organization the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation. All three of these whales are frequent visitors to Jeffreys Ledge so we were excited to see these whales once again this year.
Today we started with a few Fin whales. A couple of these whales were surfacing sporadically but soon we ended up watching pair of Fin whales on the move together. Fin whale #0354 and friend were synchronizing their movements and gave us some incredible looks at two of the second largest animals in the world!

We also got the chance to watch a few Humpback whales as well out on the ledge today. Satula was seen again today cruising through the area as well as Hancock before this whale decided to continue further offshore.
