Sunday, July 17

So many massive whales today. And when I say massive, I really mean it! We saw many of the second largest whales on Earth inshore of Jeffreys Ledge today. This morning we found 10 Fin whales including a group of 3 on the move together (Crow, #0354 and Pemetic)!

Seeing one of these 60+ ton whales moving through the water is impressive. Putting multiple of these whale together and synchronizing their movements in such an elegant fashion is truly mesmerizing. What a day.

This afternoon was equally as enjoyable as the waves slacked off a bit and we checked out 4 Fin whales including a pair moving around together.

Among all the Fin whales we even saw a couple of Minke whales moving through the area on both of our trips. Of the whales we have positively identified we saw Crow, #0354 and #0402 on both the morning and afternoon trips!

 Great looks. Great whales. Great day.
