Atlantic Queen August 8, 2011

Lots of life out on the water today! We started with a very shy Minke whale who came up twice and then gave us the slip! The rain came in and we continued our search. We found 3 Mola mola's all swimming together, then a Blue Shark made a quick appearance. As we continued and the skies cleared we saw a blow up ahead it started as 1 blow, then 2 and before we knew it, it was 5 Fin whales all together! They quickly went there own way except for 2 big adults. They were circling around doing some feeding. How did we know they were feeding? Check out the photo of whale poop! these whales were feasting on krill today, a favorite food of the Fin whale. Congratulations to the Barker family from Plymouth, NH who won our raffle today and to all who came out with us today.
