Wednesday August 31, 2011

Finally we were back on the water today after the effects of "Irene" Today was a calm, beautiful day in The Gulf of Maine. We got a call from our friends on The Prince of Whales about minke whales and perhaps a "big" whale. They did not disappoint with there call.
It was difficult to let the passengers know where to look due to so many surfaces from the 5 plus Minke whales we spent time with. Our passengers at the front of the boat got an unbelievable look at the 2ND largest whale in the world, the fin whale as it rose to breathe right under the pulpit! Labor day may be coming but the whales will still be around.
