Friday, July 29

A little rain didn’t scare away our charter group this morning! We were a little damp leaving the dock but by the time we found whales, the rain had subsided.  Minke whales were out in force! We had about a dozen different ones throughout the trip as well as a huge fin whale named Crow. 
Morning Minke Whale

Fin Whale, Crow

 This afternoon, we found 5-6 minke whales again, along with Crow and a second fin whale!   One of our minke whales cruised right next to us, showing us its pointed nose and white flipper patches. 

Crow was a little elusive but was in proximity of another whale that came up along side our boat, allowing us views of its white lower jaw and chevron!  At one point, Crow swam under our boat, but we only knew this from our fish-finder!

 On our way home, we passed through the Isles of Shoals and caught some quick looks at a harbor seal and a couple of harbor porpoises! Great day!
