Atlantic Queen July 22

Our first whale today was a minke just by the Isles of Shoals, we didn't spend to much time with this whale as we need to continue to our final destination.
Next came a nice pod of Atlantic White Sided Dolphin, a nursery pod, being very friendly and curious. While we were watching the dolphin a blue shark came up right next to the pulpit giving our passengers very cool looks. Our friends on The Prince of Whales let us know of a very cooperative fin whale, this whale was enormous, one of the largest I have ever seen! This whale stayed next to us for many looks, a fantastic site! It did cool down off shore, thankfully, so if you want to escape the hot humid weekend join us for a beautiful day on the water. Congratulations to Kathi and Rick who won our raffle today, a humpback whale named "Satula".
