July 13 Atlantic Queen

Such a change from the last few days we have had out at Jeffreys Ledge. Saw a minke whale relatively early in the trip. This whale was feeding and showing the passengers its zig-zag feeding pattern. We had a few passengers on board who had never seen a whale in the wild before, and they were so excited when this minke whale popped up.

We then headed further out to the ledge in search of the whales we had been seeing in that area the past few days. Unfortunately it seems those whales have moved on in search of more food in the Gulf of Maine. Luckily we had some fin whales in the area. These whales were doing a bit of traveling, but passengers were able to get a few good looks at these giant creatures!

Thank you to the Seacoast Science Center, and their steweards (campers) for helping the Blue Ocean Society collect data on marine debris during our trip. We had a great day out at Jeffreys Ledge. Hope to see you all soon!
