Atlantic Queen September 15

A perfect fall day for whale watching.  We headed to the southern part of the ledge today, with reports of whales from our friends on the Prince of Whales.  It was a good report as far as the number of whales but there down times were long.

The wind and sea's were picking up which made keeping an eye on the whales a bit more difficult.  As I always say you need to be patient while viewing whales in there natural habitat, and yes it did finally pay off.
"Nessie's" dorsal


Nessie is a whale I have never seen before,which is always exciting.  One of the best things about our 2012 season has been new whales coming to the ledge and some old timers who have come to visit as well.

Nessie was born in 2003,a calf of Pina.  Nessie is 9years old,though we are unsure weather this whale is male or female,we may find out next year as he/she is old enough to head to the calving and mating grounds of the Caribbean.

We are still going out weekends until Columbus Day weekend, come out and spend a beautiful day with the great fall weather and of course beautiful whales.
