The noon departure began with some uncertainty. The amazing whales from Saturday were no longer in the same place according to boats that left before us. This meant we had to do a bit of searching. As we reached the ledge, we started to see blows in the distance. As we got closer, it appeared that many of the same whales from yesterday had all moved together.

On our trip home, we came across a mother/calf pair of fin whales!! What a surprise! We got just a couple looks and then had to continue on to the dock.

The sunset trip was very nice as well. We didn't make it to the Ledge since we spotted a pair of fin whales that took us north and close to the Isles of Shoals! This turned out to be the same mother/calf pair we had spotted earlier but they ended up over 8 miles from where we had seen them before! The sunset was lovely and the whales cooperated by surfacing right between us and the setting sun!
