What a strange weather day on the Prince of Whales today! We left Newburyport in the rain, and returned in the rain, but magically our time on the Ledge with the whales was mostly dry!
We began with a finback whale. We then got closer to the Ledge and found Raccoon, our only male humpback whale of the day.
As we pushed on, a massive amount of whale and bird activity surrounded us! Greater and sooty shearwaters were every where, in numbers I have never seen before! As for the whales, we saw a lot of bubble feeding from some old friends (Tripod and Valley) and then found some new friends (Trident, Diablo and Skua). These 3 are new visitors to Jeffreys Ledge and were extra enthusiastic! Trident and Diablo breached (jumped out of the water) near the boat surprising everyone on board! I'll post images/video from that event as soon as I recieve the images!!
