What a day! We had a variety of marine life in the Jeffreys Ledge area today, but the highlight for me was seeing pilot whales - a species that I haven't seen since 2008!
But before we saw the pilot whales, we were surprised to find 3 fin whales, traveling very close together. One had a huge series of prop scars on its right side, evidence of an interaction with a boat, illustrating one of the main threats to whales - ship strikes.
