Surprisingly, our first fin whale sighting was only about 7 miles offshore. It was great watching this beautiful whale with the historic Isles of Shoals in the background.

We then headed out to Jeffreys Ledge, where we found several more fin whales. They were behaving really erratically, but we got some good looks at a whale with a distinctive notch in its dorsal fin.
I haven't figured out if this is an individual we've seen before, but if we identify it, I'll let you know.
Thanks to all who joined us today, and a special congratulations to Ava, for winning our raffle!
