May 29, 2022

Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, the sun was out and the wind had calmed a bit since yesterday. Heading out towards Jeffreys Ledge we found a stealthy fin whale, so big and so sleek!

After a few looks we were back on our way. Further offshore, we came across Patchwork with a familiar humpback whale, Valley! The two were slowly on the move, and with the calm seas, provided some beautiful looks at these whales.

We also attempted to check out another fin whale but with this whale on the move, and along with a distant look at a minke whale, it was time to head back to the mainland. 

For our birding friends, the storm petrels are out in full force. So many offshore. A fun sight watching them "dance" on the water!

So many petrels!
