August 14 Atlantic Queen

What a lovely day out on Jeffreys Ledge. After a few days of heading down to southern Jeffreys, today we decided to explore a little more north. We didn't have to go very far before we came across our first cetaceans! We started with a minke whale that was circling our boat. Then all of a sudden a passenger pointed out that there was a little seal in our area as well. This little harbor seal was just hanging out giving the passengers some great looks.Not long after spending some time with the minke whale we saw a fin whale spout out in the distance. This fin whale seemed to be a bit sleepy and was logging just below the surface. You can see the bright white patch on the right hand side of this whale just under the water in the picture below.

It's always exciting to have such close looks at the second largest whale on the planet!
We ended our trip with a pod of atlantic white sided dolphins! Really the best way to end a beautiful day out at Jeffreys Ledge!

Thank you to everyone who joined us! We hope to see you soon.
