The weather, and the whales, were on our side today. A very calm ocean and miles of visibility made just being out on the boat an enjoyable time. Add in our whale sightings and you've got yourself one great Saturday. Our first animal of the day was Obsidian the Humpback whale. This particular whale was first sighted in 1976, making Obsidian at least 36 years old!
The pair that we ended up spending the majority of our time with was a mother very well known to Jeffreys Ledge. It was Clamp and her calf born just this past winter.

Whales, weather, and wonderful sightings were the words of the day. Now to just wait for tomorrow and see what the whales may have in store for us back out on the Ledge.
