Atlantic Queen August 4

It was hot on the dock today but even hotter on the ledge, with whales and dolphin that is!  We got a call about some dolphin so we headed out to the hot numbers.  The report turned out to be a pod of about 20-30 Atlantic white sided dolphin!  They just stayed by the boat with us showing the passengers how fun, energetic,and curious they can be

Crystal is a male whose mom is "Salt" one of the first documented humpback whales in The Gulf of Maine,I have not seen this whale in about 15years,a thrill to see him again!
 Bat and Cajun are both females.  Bat was first sighted in 1979 and had her first calf in 1990 named Jagger, Claddaugh in 1997 with calves also in 2000, 2004,and 2008.
Cajun was born in 1998 and had her first calf in 2009, Vault,and a 2010 calf.

So many passengers supported us by purchasing our new " 10 Year Anniversary" clothing and our adorable stuffed animals, thank you all!
