Our first fin whales were in a pair- one was easy to identify- #0354 has a few distinct nicks in its fin. We have been watching this whale on Jeffreys Ledge since 2003.

Another fin whale was spotted in the distance. The blows (or spouts) from fin whales can reach 20 feet high in the air!

A couple of minke whales were poking around as well, but they were a bit wiggly and difficult to keep track of. Overall it was a great day on the ocean, especially for May. Thanks to all of you for joining us! Hope to see you back again soon.
